11. 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 ...

12. Metrological Challenges Introduced by New Tolerancing Standards
Topic: Metrology
Published: 7/5/2013
Authors: Edward P Morse, Yue Peng, Vijay Srinivasan, Craig M Shakarji
Abstract: The recent release of ISO 14405-1 has provided designers with a richer set of specification tools for the size of part features, so that various functional requirements can be captured with greater fidelity. However, these tools also bring new challe ...

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. 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 ...

17. 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 ...

18. 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 ...

19. 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 ...

20. Performance Metrics of Speed and Separation Monitoring in Shared Workspaces
Topic: Metrology
Published: 4/1/2013
Author: Jeremy A Marvel
Abstract: A metric is proposed that evaluates speed and separation monitoring efficacy in industrial robot environments in terms of the quantification of safety and the effects on productivity. The collision potential is rep-resented by separation metrics and ...
