44. Static and Dynamic Stability Performance Measurements of the Home Lift, Position and Rehabilitation (HLPR) Chair/Forklift
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7667
Topic: Robotics
Published: 3/3/2010
Authors: Joshua Johnson, Roger V Bostelman
Abstract: The Home Lift, Position and Rehabilitation (HLPR) Chair, developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), has unique capabilities and a unique shape as compared to conventional wheelchairs and powered chairs. The evaluation of ...

45. Performance Measures Framework for Unmanned Systems (PerMFUS): Initial Perspective
Topic: Robotics
Published: 2/18/2010
Authors: Hui-Min Huang, Elena R Messina, Adam S Jacoff
Abstract: The performance of intelligent unmanned systems (UMS) must be able to be measured to ensure that they can meet the operational requirements. A generic framework to enable capturing and organizing the performance metrics are highly desirable. In thi ...

46. Evaluation of RoboCup Maps
Topic: Robotics
Published: 12/17/2009
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Benjamin Balaguer, S Carpin, Arnoud Visser
Abstract: This paper describes the steps taken to create the score criteria aimed at measuring the quality of maps produced by teams participating in the RoboCup Rescue Virtual Robots competition. Since metrics have already been developed by a few research gro ...

47. From Simulation to Real Robots with Predictable Results: Methods and Examples
Topic: Robotics
Published: 12/1/2009
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, S Carpin, George Dimitoglou, Benjamin Balaguer
Abstract: From a theoretical perspective, one may easily argue (as we will in this chapter) that simulation accelerates the algorithm development cycle. However, in practice many in the robotics development community share the sentiment that "Simula-tion ...

48. Performance Measurements Towards Improved Manufacturing Vehicle Safety
Topic: Robotics
Published: 11/23/2009
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, William P Shackleford
Abstract: In this paper, we describe the current 2D (dimensional) sensor and ideal sensor configurations if 3D imagers are mounted on manufacturing vehicles in an attempt to make them more safe. Towards the ideal sensor configuration, three experiments were p ...

49. Mobile Microrobot Characterization through Performance-Based Competitions
Topic: Robotics
Published: 11/19/2009
Authors: Jason John Gorman, Craig Dyer McGray, Richard A Allen
Abstract: Recent advances in the design and fabrication of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) have enabled the development of mobile microrobots that can autonomously navigate and manipulate in controlled environments. It is expected that this technology wi ...
