31. 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 ...

32. International Standards Efforts Towards Safe Accessibility Technology for Persons With Disabilities: Cross-industry Activities
Topic: Robotics
Published: 12/31/2010
Author: Roger V Bostelman
Abstract: This paper describes the US and International Standards activities ongoing within the National Institute of Standards and Technology, Intelligent Systems Division (ISD) with regards to accessibility for the disabled. There is a critical role of stan ...

33. 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 ...

34. 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 ...

35. Methods for improving visibility measurement standards of powered industrial vehicles
Topic: Robotics
Published: 2/28/2014
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Jochen Teizer, Soumitry J. Ray, Mike Agronin, Dominic Albanese
Abstract: Poor visibility of powered industrial vehicles, such as forklifts, used in industry is often the cause of accidents that include pedestrians. Current standards allow up to 20% non-visible regions for forklifts where measurement of these regions is p ...

36. Metrics and Test Methods for Industrial Kit Building
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7942
Topic: Robotics
Published: 6/5/2013
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Zeid Kootbally, Anthony Pietromartire
Abstract: The IEEE RAS Ontologies for Robotics and Automation Working Group is dedicated to developing a methodology for knowledge representation and reasoning in robotics and automation. As part of this working group, the Industrial Robots sub-group is ta ...

37. Microelectromechanical systems based Stewart platform with sub-nano resolution
Topic: Robotics
Published: 12/3/2012
Authors: Seung Ho Yang, Yong Sik Kim, Jae M. Yoo, Nicholas G Dagalakis
Abstract: Currently difficulties exist in the fabrication of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) in the form of Stewart platforms. The macroscale positioning technology, such as universal joints, ball and roller bearings and commercial actuators, used for bu ...

38. 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 ...

39. Navigation Performance Evaluation for Automated Guided Vehicles
Topic: Robotics
Published: 5/12/2015
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Tsai Hong Hong, Geraldine S Cheok
Abstract: Automatic guided vehicles (AGVs), an industrial form of mobile robot, typically navigate using a central computer commanding AGV movement on predefined paths. Although, how well they follow these paths is less defined in research articles and their ...

40. Next Generation Packaging, Kitting, and Palletizing: Can one robot do it all?
