91. Knowledge Engineering for Real-Time Intelligent Control
Published: 9/1/2002
Authors: John Evans, Elena R Messina, James S. Albus, Craig I Schlenoff
Abstract: The key to real-time intelligent control lies in the knowledge models that the system contains. Three main classes of knowledge are identified: parametric, geometric/iconic, and symbolic. Each of these classes provides unique perspectives and advan ...

92. 4D/RCS Version 2.0: A Reference Model Architecture for Unmanned Vehicle Systems
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6910
Published: 8/22/2002
Authors: James S. Albus, Hui-Min Huang, Elena R Messina, Karl Murphy, Maris Juberts, Alberto Lacaze, Stephen B. Balakirsky, Michael O Shneier, Tsai Hong Hong, Harry A. Scott, Frederick M Proctor, William P Shackleford, John L Michaloski, Albert J. Wavering, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Nicholas G Dagalakis, William G Rippey, Keith A Stouffer, Steven Legowik
Abstract: The 4D/RCS architecture provides a reference model for military unmanned vehicles on how their software components should be identified, organized, and interacting such that missions, especially those involving unknown or hostile environments, can be ...

93. A Simulation Framework for Evaluating Mobile Robots
Published: 8/15/2002
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Elena R Messina
Abstract: As robotic technologies mature, we are moving from simple systems that roam our laboratories to heterogeneous groups of systems that operate in complex non-structured environments. The novel and extremely complex nature of these autonomous systems ge ...

94. Measuring the Performance and Intelligence of Systems: Proceedings of the 2001 PerMIS Workshop, September 4, 2001
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 982
Published: 6/1/2002
Authors: Elena R Messina, A Meystel
Abstract: This is the collection of papers presented at the Performance Metrics for Intelligent Systems Workshop, held in conjunction with the 2001 IEEE Conference on Control Applications and the IEEE International Symposium on Intelligent Control. The Worksho ...

95. A Hierarchical World Model for an Autonomous Scout Vehicle
Published: 4/5/2002
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Tommy Chang, Tsai Hong Hong, Elena R Messina, Michael O Shneier
Abstract: This paper describes a world model that combines a variety of sensed inputs and a priori information and is used to generate on-road and off-road autonomous driving behaviors. The system is designed in accordance with the principles of the 4D/RCS arc ...

96. Architecting a Simulation and Development Environment for Multi-Robot Teams
Published: 3/20/2002
Authors: James S. Albus, Stephen B. Balakirsky, Elena R Messina
Abstract: Collaborative multi-robot teams have great potential to add capabilities and minimize risk within the military domain. The composition of these teams may range from multiple copies of the same model to heterogeneous ground, air, and water vehicles op ...

97. Performance Evaluation of Autonomous Mobile Robots
Published: 2/1/2002
Authors: Adam S Jacoff, Elena R Messina, John Evans
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has initiated a program to develop quantitative metrics for machine intelligence. One of the possible approaches to evaluating machine intelligence is task-based performance testing, like a mo ...

98. An Intelligent Systems Architecture for Manufacturing (ISAM); A Reference Model Architecture for Intelligent Manufacturing Systems
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6771
Published: 1/1/2002
Authors: James S. Albus, John A Horst, Hui-Min Huang, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Elena R Messina, Alex Meystel, John L Michaloski, Frederick M Proctor, Harry A. Scott, Edward J. Barkmeyer Jr., M. Kate Senehi
Abstract: The Intelligent Systems Architecture for Manufacturing (ISAM) addresses the application of intelligent systems to the manufacturing enterprise at three degrees of abstraction: 1) a conceptual framework for developing metrics, standards, and performan ...

99. Evaluating Knowledge and Representation for Intelligent Control
Published: 9/4/2001
Authors: Elena R Messina, John Evans, James S. Albus
Abstract: Knowledge and the way it is represented have a tremendous impact on the capabilities and performance of intelligent systems. There is evidence from studies of human cognitive functions that experts use multiple representations in problem solving t ...

100. Experiences in Deploying Test Arenas for Mobile Autonomous Robots
Published: 9/4/2001
Authors: Adam S Jacoff, Elena R Messina, John Evans
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology has created a set of reference test arenas for evaluating the performance of mobile autonomous robots performing urban search and rescue tasks. The arenas are intended to help accelerate the roboti ...
