12. 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 ...

13. 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 ...

16. 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 ...

17. Best Practices and Performance Metrics Using Force Control for Robotic Assembly
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7901
Topic: Metrology
Published: 11/23/2012
Authors: Jeremy A Marvel, Joseph A Falco
Abstract: Historically, mechanical assembly was predicted to be the dominant application domain of industrial robots; yet assembly tasks are still primarily addressed by manual labor. New advances in force control (FC), machine vision, and robot dexterity ...
