11. 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 ...

14. 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 ...

15. Web-enabled Real-time Quality Feedback for Factory Systems using MTConnect
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 8/15/2012
Authors: John L Michaloski, Byeong Eon Lee, Frederick M Proctor, Sid Venkatesh
Abstract: Quality is a key element to success for any manufacturer, and the fundamental prerequisite for quality is measurement. In the discrete parts industry, quality is attained through inspection of parts but typically there is a long latency between ...
