21. Preface to the Edited Book "Performance Evaluation and Benchmarking of Intelligent Systems"
Topic: Robotics
Published: 12/31/2013
Authors: Rajmohan Madhavan, Elena R Messina, Edward Tunstel
Abstract: To design and develop capable, dependable, and affordable intelligent systems, their performance must be measurable. Scientific methodologies for standardization and benchmarking are crucial for quantitatively evaluating the performance of emerging r ...

22. 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 ...

23. 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 ...

24. 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 ...

25. 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 ...

27. 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 ...

28. 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 ...
