11. Uncertainty of temperature measurements by infrared thermography for metal cutting applications
Topic: Metrology
Published: 12/31/2013
Authors: Brandon M Lane, Eric Paul Whitenton, Viswanathan Madhavan, M Alkan Donmez
Abstract: This paper presents the methodology and results of a comprehensive measurement uncertainty analysis for infrared thermography of a cutting tool during the metal cutting process. The analysis is based on a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) camera, ty ...

12. On the Enduring Appeal of Least-squares Fitting in Computational Coordinate Metrology
Topic: Metrology
Published: 9/6/2013
Authors: Vijay Srinivasan, Craig M Shakarji, Edward P Morse
Abstract: The vast majority of points collected with coordinate measuring machines are not used in isolation; rather, collections of these points are associated with geometric features through fitting routines. In manufacturing applications, there are two fund ...

13. 3D Ground-Truth Systems for Object/Human Recognition and Tracking
Topic: Metrology
Published: 6/28/2013
Authors: Afzal A Godil, Roger V Bostelman, Kamel S Saidi, William P Shackleford, Geraldine S Cheok, Michael O Shneier, Tsai Hong Hong
Abstract: We have been researching 3D ground-truth systems for performance evaluation of vision and perception systems in the fields of smart manufacturing and robotics safety. In this paper we first present an overview of different systems that have been used ...

14. Measurement Science for 6DOF object pose ground truth
Topic: Metrology
Published: 6/28/2013
Authors: Roger D. Eastman, Jeremy A Marvel, Joseph A Falco, Tsai Hong Hong
Abstract: Users of perception systems in industrial manufacturing applications need standardized, third party ground truth procedures to validate system performance before deployment. Many manufacturing robotic applications require parts and assemblies to be p ...

15. Solving the Robot-World/Hand-Eye Calibration Problem Using the Kronecker Product
Topic: Metrology
Published: 6/24/2013
Author: Mili Indra Shah
Abstract: This paper constructs a closed-form solution to the robot-world/hand-eye calibration paper using the Kronecker product. In other words, it constructs the optimal X and Y to solve AX = YB. Additionally, this paper provides errors metrics that will mea ...

16. Development of Standard Test Methods for Unmanned and Manned Industrial Vehicles Used Near Humans
Topic: Metrology
Published: 5/3/2013
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Richard J Norcross, Joseph A Falco, Jeremy A Marvel
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has been researching human-robot/vehicle collaborative environments for automated guided vehicles (AGVs) and manned forklifts. Safety of AGVs and manned vehicles with automated functions (e.g ...

17. Review of Research on the Ground Truth Systems for Evaluating Part Identification Systems
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7926
Topic: Metrology
Published: 4/23/2013
Authors: Afzal A Godil, Roger D. Eastman, Tsai Hong Hong
Abstract: In this report we discuss different types of potential ground-truth systems that could be used to test part identification systems for manufacturing assembly applications. We discuss four main ways of acquiring ground truth for evaluating part re ...

18. Assessment of Real-Time Factory Performance through the Application of Multi-Relationship Evaluation Design
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7911
Topic: Metrology
Published: 4/17/2013
Authors: Brian A Weiss, John A Horst, Frederick M Proctor
Abstract: Successful operations within manufacturing environments require both accurate and precise information flow from one operation to the next. Incorrect, too little, or too much information can slow the manufacturing process and/or result in poor qua ...

19. Ground Truth Systems for Object Recognition and Tracking
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7923
Topic: Metrology
Published: 3/29/2013
Authors: Afzal A Godil, Roger D. Eastman, Tsai Hong Hong
Abstract: In this report we discuss different types of ground-truth systems used for evaluation of object recognition and tracking systems in industrial manufacturing environments. We discuss three main ways for acquiring ground truth for object recognitio ...

20. A Humidity Generator for Temperatures to 200 °C and Pressures to 1.6 MPa
Topic: Metrology
Published: 11/30/2012
Authors: D Vega-Maza, W Wyatt Miller, Dean C Ripple, Gregory E Scace
Abstract: We have constructed a new humidity generator that produces gas streams of known moisture content at temperatures from 85 °C to 200 °C, absolute pressures from 0.2 MPa to 1.6 MPa, and relative humidities from 10 % to 90 %. The generator produces a moi ...
