The Nipper meets the most stringent safety requirements. High-quality safety components are installed to ensure the Nipper can safely navigate through manned spaces. 

We have performed extensive risk assessments and a SISTEMA calculation to evaluate the safety-related parts of our control systems. The latter resulted in an achievement of Performance Level D. Furthermore, the Nipper complies with the CE Marking and has been granted TÜV safety certification.

The Nipper meets the following safety directives:
Machine Directive 2006/42/EC
