12. Measuring and Representing the Performance of Manufacturing Assembly Robots
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8090
Topic: Robotics
Published: 12/10/2015
Authors: Michael O Shneier, Elena R Messina, Craig I Schlenoff, Frederick M Proctor, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Joseph A Falco
Abstract: With the growth of robotic technology, there is a need for performance measures to characterize and compare robots and to help determine which features are most suited to a particular application. Robot systems are complex and involve a wide range of ...

14. Intelligence Level Performance Standards Research for Autonomous Vehicles
Topic: Robotics
Published: 10/2/2015
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Tsai Hong Hong, Elena R Messina
Abstract: U.S. and European safety standards have evolved to protect workers near Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV's). However, only recently performance standards have begun development for AGV's and mobile robots. Lessons can be learned for developing such a ...

17. Applied Force-based Multi-Fingered Grasping and Manipulation Control
Topic: Robotics
Published: 5/30/2015
Author: Karl Van Wyk
Abstract: This work presents experimental results on a recently developed manipulation controller applied to a multi-fingered robotic hand to execute both grasping and manipulation tasks. The active control strategy was applied to a three-fingered, seven degre ...

18. 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 ...

19. Literature Review of Mobile Robots for Manufacturing
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8022
Topic: Robotics
Published: 5/6/2015
Authors: Michael O Shneier, Roger V Bostelman
Abstract: Mobile robots are devices that can move autonomously to accomplish their goals. This paper provides a review of such robots, mainly oriented towards manufacturing applications. It describes the kinds of mobile robots that are used and what criter ...
