31. Evaluation of Maps using Fixed Shapes: The Fiducial Map Metric
Topic: Robotics
Published: 1/31/2011
Authors: Soren Schwertfeger, Adam S Jacoff, Christopher Scrapper, Johannes Pellenz, Alexander Kleiner
Abstract: Mapping is an important task for mobile robots. Assessing the quality of those maps is an open topic. A new approach on map evaluation is presented here. It makes use of artificial objects placed in the environment named "Fiducials". Using the known ...

32. Evaluation of RoboCup Maps
Topic: Robotics
Published: 12/17/2009
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Benjamin Balaguer, Stefano 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 ...

34. Functional Requirements of a Model for Kitting Plans
Topic: Robotics
Published: 3/22/2012
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Zeid Kootbally, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Rajmohan Madhavan, Craig I Schlenoff, Michael O Shneier
Abstract: Industrial assembly of manufactured products is often performed by first bringing parts together in a kit and then moving the kit to the assembly area where the parts are used to assemble products. Kitting, the process of building kits, has not yet b ...

35. Grasping the Performance: Facilitating Replicable Performance Measures via Benchmarking and Standardized Methodologies
Topic: Robotics
Published: 12/31/2015
Authors: Joseph A Falco, Karl Van Wyk, Shuo Liu, Stefano Carpin
Abstract: The expectation for robots to work side-by-side with humans in unstructured environments while reliably grasping and manipulating objects is a distant reality. Multiple reasons account for this persistent gap - some are technological, whereas others ...

36. 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 ...

37. 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 ...

39. Large-Area Overhead Manipulator for Access of Fields
Topic: Robotics
Published: 7/22/2011
Authors: Jeffrey W White, Roger V Bostelman
Abstract: Multi-axis, cable-driven manipulators have evolved over many years providing large area suspended platform access, programmability, relatively rigid and flexibly- positioned platform control and full six degree of freedom (DOF) manipulation of sensor ...

40. 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 ...
