111. Report of the NIST MEL Architecture Task Force
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Published: 12/29/2000
Authors: Harry A. Scott, John Evans, Steven R. Ray, E Clayton Teague, James S. Albus, Herbert T Bandy, Edward J. Barkmeyer Jr., Neil Christopher, M Alkan Donmez, Hui-Min Huang, Albert W Jones, Elena R Messina, Jim G Nell, Frederick M Proctor, Evan K Wallace
Abstract: The NIST Manufacturing Engineering Laboratory undertook a series of internal working meetings to examine all of its architecture efforts.  A survey of work was performed, and recommendations were identified.  This document, initially compil ...

112. A Standard Test Course for Urban Search and Rescue Robots
Published: 8/1/2000
Authors: Adam S Jacoff, Elena R Messina, John Evans
Abstract: One approach to measuring the performance of intelligent systems is to develop standardized or reproducible tests. These tests may be in a simulated environment or in a physical test course. The National Institute of Standards and Technology is dev ...

113. Performance Metrics for Intelligent Systems
Published: 8/1/2000
Authors: John Evans, Elena R Messina
Abstract: Research into intelligent systems and intelligent control is burgeoning. However, there is no consensus on how to define or measure an intelligent system. This lack of rigor hinders the ability to measure progress in the field and to compare differen ...

114. The NIST RS274NGC Interpreter - Version 3
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6556
Published: 8/1/2000
Authors: Thomas Rollin Kramer, Frederick M Proctor, Elena R Messina
Abstract: This report describes an interpreter which reads numerical control code and produces calls to a set of canonical machining functions. The interpreteris a software system written in the C++ programming language. The output of the interpreter may be us ...

115. The Challenge of Intelligent Systems
Published: 7/19/2000
Authors: A Meystel, Elena R Messina
Abstract: This paper analyzes the meaning of intelligence within the domain of intelligent control. Because of historical reasons, there are varying and diverse definitions of what constitutes an intelligent control system. Due to the multidisciplinary natu ...

116. An Open Architecture Inspection System
Published: 7/1/2000
Authors: Elena R Messina, Hui-Min Huang, Harry A. Scott
Abstract: The benefits of open architectures are not currently available for most manufacturing equipment. We describe a testbed for experimenting with an open architecture controller for an inspection system. An initial taxonomy of categories of openness ...

117. An Architecture and Tool for Large-scale System Control with a manufacturing system application
Published: 6/1/2000
Authors: Hui-Min Huang, James S. Albus, William P Shackleford, Harry A. Scott, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Elena R Messina, Frederick M Proctor
Abstract: This paper describes a reference architecture that is applicable to multiple classes of large-scale, complex real-time control systems. An associated tool, Generic Shell, is also described. Generic Shell employs a set of code templates that faci ...

118. Proceedings of the Open Architecture in Metrology Automation Workshop, Gaithersburg, MD, May 2 & 3, 2000
Published: 5/1/2000
Authors: John A Horst, Elena R Messina, John Evans, Dennis A Swyt
Abstract: Metrology, Standards

119. An Automated Hierarchical Process Planning System
Published: 4/28/2000
Authors: Thomas Rollin Kramer, Hui-Min Huang, Elena R Messina, Frederick M Proctor, Harry A. Scott
Abstract: This paper describes an automated hierarchical process planning system for machining and inspecting discrete parts in an RCS type control system. The system integrates planning with control of a 3-axis machining center and a coordinate measuring mach ...

120. Formalizing the NIST 4-D/RCS Reference Model Architecture Using an Architectural Description Language
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6443
Published: 12/1/1999
