Hello Luc, Are you referring to certifications with sensors such as LiDARS or the robot as a whole? We provide sensor solutions for autonomous robots where some require a CAT 3 Sil2 type safety requirement but others do not so it is dependent on the application. Thank you, Greg Watson Hokuyo USA www.hokuyo-usa.com
