3. A Literature Review of Sensor Ontologies for Manufacturing Applications
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 10/23/2013
Authors: Craig I Schlenoff, Tsai Hong Hong, Roger D. Eastman
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to review existing sensor and sensor network ontologies to understand whether they can be reused as a basis for a manufacturing perception sensor ontology, or if the existing ontologies hold lessons for the development of ...

5. Inferring Intention Through State Representations in Cooperative Human-Robot Environments
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 6/7/2013
Authors: Craig I Schlenoff, Anthony Pietromartire, Zeid Kootbally, Stephen B. Balakirsky, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Sebti Foufou
Abstract: In this paper, we describe a novel approach for inferring intention during cooperative human-robot activities through the representation and ordering of state information. State relationships are represented by a combination of spatial relationships ...

8. An Approach to Ontology-Based Intention Recognition Using State Representations
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 10/7/2012
Authors: Craig I Schlenoff, Sebti Foufou, Stephen B. Balakirsky
Abstract: In this paper, we present initial thoughts on an approach to ontology/logic-based intention recognition based on the recognition, representation, and ordering of states. This is different than traditional approaches to intention recognition, which us ...
