21. Measuring and Representing the Performance of Manufacturing Assembly Robots
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8090
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 12/10/2015
Authors: Michael O Shneier, Elena R Messina, Craig I Schlenoff, Frederick M Proctor, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Joseph A Falco
Abstract: With the growth of robotic technology, there is a need for performance measures to characterize and compare robots and to help determine which features are most suited to a particular application. Robot systems are complex and involve a wide range of ...
