12. 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 ...

13. Registration of Six Degrees of Freedom Data with Proper Handling of Positional and Rotational Noise
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Report Number: 118.013
Topic: Robotics
Published: 6/6/2013
Author: Marek Franaszek
Abstract: When two six degrees of freedom (6DOF) data are registered (e.g., robot-world/hand-eye calibration), a transformation is sought which minimizes the misalignment between the two datasets. Often, the measure of misalignment is the sum of the posit ...

17. Microelectromechanical systems based Stewart platform with sub-nano resolution
Topic: Robotics
Published: 12/3/2012
Authors: Seung Ho Yang, Yong Sik Kim, Jae Myung Yoo, Nicholas G Dagalakis
Abstract: Currently difficulties exist in the fabrication of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) in the form of Stewart platforms. The macroscale positioning technology, such as universal joints, ball and roller bearings and commercial actuators, used for bu ...

18. 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 ...
