3. 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 ...

4. A Roadmap to Advance Measurement Science in Robot Dexterity and Manipulation
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7993
Topic: Robotics
Published: 5/1/2014
Authors: Joseph A Falco, Jeremy A Marvel, Elena R Messina
Abstract: In order for robots to expand their applicability within manufacturing operations, their dexterity needs to advance considerably. There is active research in many areas that is contributing to creating a new generation of much more dexterous arms an ...

5. 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 ...

6. AGVs and Forklifts Gaining Sight for Safety
Topic: Robotics
Published: 1/10/2013
Author: Roger V Bostelman
Abstract: Forklifts and automated guided vehicles are useful tools for the manufacturing industry. With regard to safety of workers (and equipment) near industrial vehicles, there are issues when using either manned or automated powered industrial vehicles in ...

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 ...

9. Advancing the State of Urban Search and Rescue Robotics through the RoboCupRescue Robot League Competition
Topic: Robotics
Published: 7/16/2012
Authors: Raymond K. Sheh, Adam S Jacoff, Ann M Virts, Tetsuya Kimura, Johannes Pellenz, Soren Schwertfeger, Jackrit Suthakorn
Abstract: The RoboCupRescue Robot League is an international competition that has grown to be an effective driver for the dissemination of solutions to the challenges posed by Urban Search and Rescue Robotics and accelerated the development of the performance ...

10. An Approach to Ontology-Based Intention Recognition Using State Representations
Topic: Robotics
Published: 10/7/2012
Authors: Craig I Schlenoff, Sebti Foufou, Stephen B. Balakirsky
Abstract: In this paper, we present initial thoughts on an approach to ontology/logic-based intention recognition based on the recognition, representation, and ordering of states. This is different than traditional approaches to intention recognition, which us ...
