51. 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 ...

52. 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 ...

53. 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 ...

54. 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 ...

55. Quantitative Assessment of Robot-generated Maps
Topic: Robotics
Published: 10/8/2009
Authors: Christopher J. Scrapper Jr, Rajmohan Madhavan, Adam S Jacoff, R Lakaemper, A Censi, Afzal A Godil, Asim Wagan
Abstract: Mobile robotic mapping is now considered to be a sufficiently mature field with demonstrated successes in various domains. While there has been much progress made in the development of computationally efficient and consistent mapping schemes, it is s ...

56. Robots to the Rescue
Topic: Robotics
Published: 6/30/2009
Author: Elena R Messina
Abstract: Despite current limitations, robots can still play a significant role in helping the response community by being their eyes and ears in dangerous, unknown, or difficult-to-access locations. This article describes how the National Institute of Stan ...

57. Advancing Manufacturing Research Through Competitions
Topic: Robotics
Published: 4/17/2009
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Rajmohan Madhavan
Abstract: Competitions provide a technique for building interest and collaboration in targeted research areas. This paper will present a new competition that aims to increase collaboration amongst Universities, automation end-users, and automation manufacturer ...

58. An Integrated Control and Simulation Environment for Mobile Robot Software Development
Topic: Robotics
Published: 8/7/2008
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Frederick M Proctor, Christopher J. Scrapper Jr, Thomas Rollin Kramer
Abstract: In order to expedite the research and development of robotic systems and foster development of novel robot configuration, is it essential to develop tools and standards that allow researchers to rapidly develop, communicate, and compare experimental ...

59. Absolute Refractive Indices and Thermal Coefficients of CaF^d2^, SrF^d2^, BaF^d2^, and LiF Near 157 nm
Topic: Robotics
Published: 5/1/2002
Authors: Ulf Griesmann, J H Burnett, R Gupta
Abstract: We present accurate measurements near 157 nm of the absolute index of refraction, the index dispersion, and the temperature dependence of the index, for the cubic-symmetry, ultraviolet optical materials CaF^d2^, SrF^d2^, BaF^d2^, and LiF. Accurate va ...

60. Texture-Independent Vision-Based Closed-Loop Fuzzy Controllers for Navigation Tasks
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5637
Topic: Robotics
Published: 4/1/1995
Authors: S R Kundur, Daniel Raviv
Abstract: This paper deals with vision-based closed-loop control schemes for collision avoidance as well as maintenance of clearance in a-priori unknown textured environments. These control schemes are based on fuzzy logic and employ a visual motion cue, we ...
