14. Toward Better Integration of Vehicle Assembly Production Systems
Topic: Robotics
Published: 11/15/2012
Authors: Jorge Arinez, John L Michaloski, Frederick M Proctor, William G Rippey, C Jerry Yen
Abstract: In today's manufacturing world, system integration often necessitates composing systems of technology that are not designed to interoperate with each other. This inherent incompatibility results in redundant, non-value added work that is required fo ...

17. An Approach to Ontology-Based Intention Recognition Using State Representations
Topic: Robotics
Published: 10/7/2012
Authors: Craig I Schlenoff, Sebti Foufou, Stephen B. Balakirsky
Abstract: In this paper, we present initial thoughts on an approach to ontology/logic-based intention recognition based on the recognition, representation, and ordering of states. This is different than traditional approaches to intention recognition, which us ...

18. Performance Measures Framework for Unmanned Systems (PerMFUS): Models for Contextual Metrics
Topic: Robotics
Published: 7/31/2012
Authors: Hui-Min Huang, Elena R Messina, Adam S Jacoff, Robert Wade, Micheal McNail
Abstract: In the development of the Performance Measures Framework for Unmanned Systems (PerMFUS), we have established a multiple-axis performance metrics model for the unmanned systems (UMS). This model characterizes the UMS performance requirements by the m ...
