1. Dynamic Metrology Performance Measurement of a Six Degree-Of-Freedom Tracking System used in Smart Manufacturing
Topic: Robotics
Published: 12/31/2015
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Joseph A Falco, Milli Shah, Tsai Hong Hong
Abstract: Multi-camera motion capture systems are commercially available and are typically used in the entertainment industry to track human motions for video gaming and movies. These systems are proving useful as ground truth measurement systems to assess the ...

2. Intelligence Level Performance Standards Research for Autonomous Vehicles
Topic: Robotics
Published: 10/2/2015
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Tsai Hong Hong, Elena R Messina
Abstract: U.S. and European safety standards have evolved to protect workers near Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV's). However, only recently performance standards have begun development for AGV's and mobile robots. Lessons can be learned for developing such a ...

3. Software Tools for XML to OWL Translation
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: NIST IR 8068
Topic: Robotics
Published: 7/7/2015
Authors: Thomas Rollin Kramer, Benjamin H. Marks, Craig I Schlenoff, Stephen B. Balakirsky, Zeid Kootbally, Anthony Pietromartire
Abstract: This paper describes a set of closely related C++ software tools for manipulating XML (eXtensible Markup Language) schemas and XML instance files and translating them into OWL (Web Ontology Language) class _les and OWL instance files. They includ ...

4. Automated Guided Vehicle Bumper Test Method Development
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8029
Topic: Robotics
Published: 6/2/2015
Authors: Richard J Norcross, Roger V Bostelman, Joseph A Falco
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is developing test methods for contact bumpers used on Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) as basis for safety standards. This paper describes proposed test methods, force measurements for c ...

5. Applied Force-based Multi-Fingered Grasping and Manipulation Control
Topic: Robotics
Published: 5/30/2015
Author: Karl Van Wyk
Abstract: This work presents experimental results on a recently developed manipulation controller applied to a multi-fingered robotic hand to execute both grasping and manipulation tasks. The active control strategy was applied to a three-fingered, seven degre ...

6. Navigation Performance Evaluation for Automated Guided Vehicles
Topic: Robotics
Published: 5/12/2015
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Tsai Hong Hong, Geraldine S Cheok
Abstract: Automatic guided vehicles (AGVs), an industrial form of mobile robot, typically navigate using a central computer commanding AGV movement on predefined paths. Although, how well they follow these paths is less defined in research articles and their ...

7. Literature Review of Mobile Robots for Manufacturing
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8022
Topic: Robotics
Published: 5/6/2015
Authors: Michael O Shneier, Roger V Bostelman
Abstract: Mobile robots are devices that can move autonomously to accomplish their goals. This paper provides a review of such robots, mainly oriented towards manufacturing applications. It describes the kinds of mobile robots that are used and what criter ...

8. Performance Measurement of Mobile Manipulators
Topic: Robotics
Published: 4/24/2015
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Tsai Hong Hong, Jeremy A Marvel
Abstract: This paper describes a concept for measuring the reproducible performance of mobile manipulators to be used for assembly or other similar tasks. An AGV with an onboard robot arm was programmed to repeatedly move to and stop at a novel, reconfigurabl ...

9. Performance Evaluation Methods for Human Detection and Tracking Systems for Robotic Applications
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8045
Topic: Robotics
Published: 3/14/2015
Authors: Michael O Shneier, Tsai Hong Hong, Kamel S Saidi, William P Shackleford
Abstract: Detecting and tracking people is becoming more important in robotic applications because of the increasing demand for collaborative work in which people interact closely with and in the same workspace as robots. New safety standards allow people ...

10. Towards a Standard Mixed-Signal Parallel Processing Architecture for Miniature and Microrobotics
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Report Number: 119.020
Topic: Robotics
Published: 9/18/2014
Authors: Brian M. Sadler, Sebastian Hoyos
Abstract: The conventional analog-to-digital conversion (ADC) and digital signal processing (DSP) architecture has led to major advances in miniature and micro-systems technology over the past several decades. The outlook for these devices is significant ...
