The IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS) Technical Committee (TC) on Wearable Robotics was approved during the IEEE RAS Technical Activities Board meeting that was held 15 May 2016 in Stockholm, Sweden, along with the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) 2016. The TC maintained a high level of activities, including the organization of a series of scientific events such as conferences, summer schools, and special sessions/workshops in major RAS and non-RAS conferences, as well as leading special issues in prestigious Institute for Scientific Information journals. The TC provided a platform to promote international initiatives, innovative and industrial solutions for the assistance of frail people, which would provide an excellent opportunity to share information and technology transfer between experts from different fields such as medical, social, caregiving, and industry.
