11. Control Fusion for Safe Multi-robot Coordination
Topic: Robotics
Published: 5/9/2014
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Jeremy A Marvel
Abstract: Future smart manufacturing systems will include more complex coordination of mobile manipulators (e.g., robot arms mounted on mobile bases). The National Institute of Standards and Technology, Performance of Collaborative Robot Systems Project has b ...

12. 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 ...

14. 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 ...

15. A Simulated Sensor-based Approach for Kit Building Applications
Topic: Robotics
Published: 12/20/2013
Authors: Zeid Kootbally, Craig I Schlenoff, Theodore J Weisman, Stephen B. Balakirsky, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Anthony Pietromartire
Abstract: Kit building or kitting is a process in which individually separate but related items are grouped, packaged, and supplied together as one unit (kit). This paper describes advances in developing sensing/control and parts detection technologies enablin ...

16. Towards Mobile Manipulator Safety Standards
Topic: Robotics
Published: 10/24/2013
Authors: Jeremy A Marvel, Roger V Bostelman
Abstract: We present an overview of the current safety standards for industrial robots and automated guided vehicles (AGVs), and describe how they relate to the safety concerns of mobile manipulators (robot arms mounted on mobile bases) in modern manufacturing ...

17. A Literature Review of Sensor Ontologies for Manufacturing Applications
Topic: Robotics
Published: 10/23/2013
Authors: Craig I Schlenoff, Tsai Hong Hong, Roger D. Eastman
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to review existing sensor and sensor network ontologies to understand whether they can be reused as a basis for a manufacturing perception sensor ontology, or if the existing ontologies hold lessons for the development of ...

18. Challenges of the Changing Robot Markets
Topic: Robotics
Published: 7/19/2013
Authors: Gurvinder Singh Virk, Carol Herman, Roger V Bostelman, Tamas Haidegger
Abstract: Service robots are becoming an integrated part of daily life, entering even the most complex scenarios, yet at a slower pace than previously anticipated. This paper presents an overview of the changing area of robotics and the new challenges being fa ...

Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7940
Topic: Robotics
Published: 6/21/2013
Authors: Joseph A Falco, Jeremy A Marvel, Elena R Messina
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology organized a free workshop in conjunction with the 2013 Automate and ProMat trade shows in Chicago, IL. The workshop addressed the application of dexterous robot technologies to meet the applicat ...

20. Inferring Intention Through State Representations in Cooperative Human-Robot Environments
Topic: Robotics
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 ...
