1. Uncertainty in Measurement of the Maximum Cutting Tool Temperature by Infrared Thermography
Topic: Metrology
Published: 6/13/2014
Authors: Brandon M Lane, Eric Paul Whitenton, Viswanathan Madhavan, M Alkan Donmez
Abstract: This paper presents an analysis of the uncertainty in measurement of the peak temperature on the side face of a cutting tool by infrared thermography. An analytical method uses the temperature measurement equation to study the uncertainty arising f ...

2. 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 ...

4. 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 ...

5. 3D Ground-Truth Systems for Object/Human Recognition and Tracking
Topic: Metrology
Published: 6/28/2013
Authors: Afzal A Godil, Roger V Bostelman, Kamel Shawki 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 ...

6. 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 ...

7. Standardized Performance Testing Metrics for Optical Coordinate Measurement Systems
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7883
Topic: Metrology
Published: 5/9/2013
Author: Steven David Phillips
Abstract: Optical probing technology on coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) operates significantly differently from discrete point probing associated with tactile probing CMMs hence manufacturers of this technology seek to use different testing artifacts for ...

8. 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 ...

9. 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 ...

10. 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 ...
