Authors: Jeremy A Marvel, Roger D. Eastman, Geraldine S Cheok, Kamel S Saidi, Tsai Hong Hong, Elena R Messina, Bob Bollinger, Paul Evans, Joyce Guthrie, Eric Hershberger, Carlos Martinez, Karen McNamara, James Wells
Abstract: The special session on Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs) for Randomized Bin Picking was held during the morning session of the 2012 Performance Metrics for Intelligent Systems (PerMIS) workshop, 21 March, 2012. The stated objective of the speci ...

23. Kinematic Modeling and Calibration of a Flexure Based Hexapod Nanopositioner
Topic: Metrology
Published: 8/21/2012
Authors: Hongliang Shi, Hai-Jun Su, Nicholas G Dagalakis, John A Kramar
Abstract: This paper covers the kinematic modeling of a flexure-based, hexapod nanopositioner and a new method of calibration for this type of nanopositioner. This six degrees of freedom tri-stage nanopositioner can generate small displacement, high-resolution ...

24. Performance Evaluation of Consumer-Grade 3D Sensors for Static 6DOF Pose Estimation Systems
Topic: Metrology
Published: 8/16/2012
Authors: Jeremy A Marvel, Marek Franaszek, Jessica Wilson, Tsai Hong Hong
Abstract: Low-cost 3D depth and range sensors are steadily becoming more widely available, affordable, and thus popular for robotics enthusiasts. As basic research tools, however, their accuracy and performance are relatively unknown. In this paper, we describ ...

25. Information Required for Dimensional Measurement
Topic: Metrology
Published: 7/27/2012
Authors: John A Horst, Curtis Brown, Robert Brown, Larry Maggiano, K Summerhays, Thomas Rollin Kramer
Abstract: Much work has been done by standards organizations to model dimensional measurement information in digital formats, but the work done has revealed that standard digital formats from upstream processes are currently insufficient to enable the automati ...

26. Room Temperature Acoustic Transducers for High-Temperature Thermometry
Topic: Metrology
Published: 7/9/2012
Authors: Dean C Ripple, William E. Murdock, Gregory F Strouse, Keith A Gillis, Michael R Moldover
Abstract: We have successfully conducted highly-accurate, primary acoustic thermometry at 600 K using a sound source and a sound detector at room temperature. We describe the source, the detector, and the ducts that connected them to our cavity resonator. Thi ...

27. Confocal Microscopy Analysis of Breech Face Marks on Fired Cartridge Cases from Ten Consecutively Manufactured Pistol Slides
Topic: Metrology
Published: 7/1/2012
Authors: Xiaoyu A Zheng, Robert Meryln Thompson, Todd Weller
Abstract: Ten (10) pistol slides with consecutively manufactured breech faces, were obtained from Sturm, Ruger Co, Inc. A total of nine (9) test fires from each pistol, for a total of ninety (90) test fired cartridge cases, were compared using comparison micr ...

28. Next Generation Packaging, Kitting, and Palletizing: Can one robot do it all?
