RT and ICT devices such as robots for assisting daily living are beginning to be introduced to architectural spaces where humans are present. However, there is concern that some metropolitan areas are suffering electromagnetic environmental effects that overwhelm the electromagnetic susceptibility of many electronic devices. RT and ICT devices must function in accordance with the performance characteristics of buildings and electrical facilities within spaces where many electronic devices operate. Accordingly, to enable people to achieve a high quality of life and safety by using RT and ICT devices, we need to build spaces where such technologies can function reliably. In this study, we discuss this issue and present electromagnetic environmental criteria for utilizing spaces where electronic devices function. We also present technologies for measuring and evaluating electromagnetic environmental effects and implementing necessary countermeasures.
