1. Performance Measurements of Motion Capture Systems used for AGV and Robot Arm Evaluation
Topic: Robotics
Published: 6/12/2015
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Joseph A Falco, 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. 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 ...

3. 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 ...

4. 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 ...

5. 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 ...

8. A Roadmap to Advance Measurement Science in Robot Dexterity and Manipulation
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7993
Topic: Robotics
Published: 5/1/2014
Authors: Joseph A Falco, Jeremy A Marvel, Elena R Messina
Abstract: In order for robots to expand their applicability within manufacturing operations, their dexterity needs to advance considerably. There is active research in many areas that is contributing to creating a new generation of much more dexterous arms an ...

10. Methods for improving visibility measurement standards of powered industrial vehicles
Topic: Robotics
Published: 2/28/2014
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Jochen Teizer, Soumitry J. Ray, Mike Agronin, Dominic Albanese
Abstract: Poor visibility of powered industrial vehicles, such as forklifts, used in industry is often the cause of accidents that include pedestrians. Current standards allow up to 20% non-visible regions for forklifts where measurement of these regions is p ...
