1. Information-based Intelligent Unmanned Ground Vehicle Navigation
Published: 10/1/2003
Authors: Rajmohan Madhavan, Elena R Messina
Abstract: Abstract?Sensor-centric navigation of Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) operating in rugged and expansive terrains requires the competency to evaluate the utility of sensor information such that it results in intelligent behavior of the vehicles. In th ...

2. Performance Measures for Intelligent Systems: Measures of Technology Readiness PerMIS 03 White Paper
Published: 8/18/2003
Authors: Elena R Messina, James S. Albus, Alex Meystel

3. Toward a Generic Model for Autonomy Levels for Unmanned Systems (ALFUS)
Published: 8/18/2003
Authors: Hui-Min Huang, Elena R Messina, James S. Albus
Abstract: Unmanned systems (UMSs) have been deployed to military and civilian operations. UMSs vary widely in their capabilities andcivilian operations. UMSs vary widely in their capabilities and purposes. It would be beneficial to have a set of widely recogni ...

4. Achieving Intelligent Performance in Autonomous Driving
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7166
Published: 10/31/2003
Authors: James S. Albus, John Evans, Craig I Schlenoff, Tony Barbera, Elena R Messina, Stephen B. Balakirsky

5. Autonomy Level Specification for Intelligent Autonomous Vehicles: Interim Progress Report
Published: 8/18/2003
Authors: Hui-Min Huang, James S. Albus, Elena R Messina
Abstract: As unmanned systems become widely employed in various applications, it is critical to have a set of standard definitions and metrics for pecifying and evaluating the systems in terms of their levels of autonomy. Developing autonomy levels for unmanne ...

6. Design and Workspace Analysis of a 6-6 Cable-Suspended Parallel Robot
Published: 10/1/2003
Authors: H C Pusey, A Fattah, S K Agrawal, Elena R Messina, Adam S Jacoff
Abstract: In this paper, we study the design and workspace of a 6-6 cable-suspended parallel robot. The workspace volume is characterized as the set of points where the centroid of the MP (MP) can reach with tensions in all suspension cables at a constant orie ...

7. Evolution of a Performance Metric for Urban Search and Rescue Robots (2003)
Published: 8/18/2003
Authors: Adam S Jacoff, Brian A Weiss, Elena R Messina
Abstract: This paper discusses the advancement and proliferation of the Reference Test Arenas for Urban Search and Rescue Robots as representative search and rescue environments, which allow objective performance evaluation of mobile robot capabilities. These ...

8. Knowledge representation for a trash collecting robot: results from the 2004 AAAI Spring Symposium
Published: 12/31/2004
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Elena R Messina, Craig I Schlenoff, S Smith, M Uschold
Abstract: The attendees of the Knowledge Representation and Ontologies for Autonomous Systems Symposium applied their collective intelligence in an attempt to solve one of the universe?s great challenges: how do you autonomously collect garbage from an airpor ...

9. Performance Evaluation of Temporal Range Registration for Autonomous Vehicle Navigation
Published: 6/28/2006
Authors: Rajmohan Madhavan, Elena R Messina
Abstract: In this article, we evaluate the performance of an iterative registration algorithm for position estimation of Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) operating in unstructured environments. Field data obtained from trials on UGVs traversing undulating outd ...

10. Preface to the Edited Book "Performance Evaluation and Benchmarking of Intelligent Systems"
Published: 12/31/2013
Authors: Rajmohan Madhavan, Elena R Messina, Edward Tunstel
Abstract: To design and develop capable, dependable, and affordable intelligent systems, their performance must be measurable. Scientific methodologies for standardization and benchmarking are crucial for quantitatively evaluating the performance of emerging r ...
