1. Comparison of Registration Methods for Mobile Manipulators
Topic: Robotics
Published: 9/16/2016
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Roger Eastman, Tsai Hong Hong, Omar Aboul Enein, Steven Anthony Legowik, Sebti Foufou
Abstract: Mobile manipulators can be effective, efficient and flexible for automation on the factory floor but will need safety and performance standards for wide adoption. This paper looks at a specific area of performance standards [1] for docking and workpi ...

2. Dynamic Metrology and ASTM E57.02 Dynamic Measurement Standard
Topic: Robotics
Published: 7/29/2016
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Tsai Hong Hong, Mili Shah, Steven Legowik
Abstract: Optical tracking systems are used in a wide range of fields. The market for optical tracking systems has dramatically increased over the past several years to $1.2B revenue in 2014. This paper describes the new ASTM E3064 Standard test method proce ...

3. Mobile Manipulator Performance Measurement Towards Manufacturing Assembly Tasks
Topic: Robotics
Published: 7/13/2016
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Sebti Foufou, Steven Anthony Legowik, Tsai Hong Hong
Abstract: Mobile manipulator performance measurement research is relatively minimal as compared to that of robot arms. Measurement methods, such as optical tracking systems, are useful for measuring the performances of mobile manipulators, although at a much ...

4. Multi-Fingered Robotic Grasping: A Primer
Topic: Robotics
Published: 7/1/2016
Authors: Stefano Carpin, Shuo Liu, Joseph A Falco, Karl Van Wyk
Abstract: Grasping and manipulation has generated significant interest in the robotics community, and robotic grasping emerged as an autonomous area of research since the development of the first robotic hands. Notwithstanding, robotic grasping continues to be ...

5. Survey of Research for Performance Measurement of Mobile Manipulators
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Topic: Robotics
Published: 6/30/2016
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Tsai Hong Hong, Jeremy A Marvel
Abstract: This survey provides the basis for developing research in the area of mobile manipulator performance measurement, an area that has relatively few research articles, as com-pared to other mobile manipulator research areas. The survey begins with a li ...

6. Propagation of Error from Registration Parameters to Transformed Data
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Topic: Robotics
Published: 6/6/2016
Authors: Mili Shah, Marek Franaszek, Geraldine S Cheok
Abstract: Methods to register two sets of data have existed for quite some time. However, these sets of data are rarely error-free. Consequently, any parameters obtained from a registration method will be affected by the error in the sets of data. Moreover, if ...

7. Mobile Robot and Mobile Manipulator Research Towards ASTM F45 Standards Developments
Topic: Robotics
Published: 4/21/2016
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Tsai Hong Hong
Abstract: Performance standards for industrial mobile robots and mobile manipulators (robot arms onboard mobile robots) have only recently begun development. Low cost and standardized measurement techniques are needed to characterize system performance, compar ...

8. Benchmarking Robot Force Control Capabilities: Experimental Results
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8097
Topic: Robotics
Published: 1/7/2016
Authors: Joseph A Falco, Jeremy A Marvel, Richard J Norcross, Karl Van Wyk
Abstract: Metrics and test methods are needed to characterize the control capabilities of robots with both intrinsic and extrinsic force sensing. The availability of these benchmarks will motivate research product development, and provide a mechanism for repo ...

9. 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 ...

10. Grasping the Performance: Facilitating Replicable Performance Measures via Benchmarking and Standardized Methodologies
Topic: Robotics
Published: 12/31/2015
Authors: Joseph A Falco, Karl Van Wyk, Shuo Liu, Stefano Carpin
Abstract: The expectation for robots to work side-by-side with humans in unstructured environments while reliably grasping and manipulating objects is a distant reality. Multiple reasons account for this persistent gap - some are technological, whereas others ...
