24. Integrating Occlusion Monitoring into Human Tracking for Robot Speed and Separation Monitoring
Topic: Robotics
Published: 5/16/2012
Authors: William P Shackleford, Sandor S. Szabo, Richard J Norcross, Jeremy A Marvel
Abstract: Collaborative robots work in close proximity to humans to perform a variety of tasks, while more traditional industrial robots need to be shut down whenever a human enters its work-volume. Instead of relying on physical barriers or merely detecting ...

26. Functional Requirements of a Model for Kitting Plans
Topic: Robotics
Published: 3/22/2012
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Zeid Kootbally, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Rajmohan Madhavan, Craig I Schlenoff, Michael O Shneier
Abstract: Industrial assembly of manufactured products is often performed by first bringing parts together in a kit and then moving the kit to the assembly area where the parts are used to assemble products. Kitting, the process of building kits, has not yet b ...
