41. 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 ...

42. 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 ...

43. 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 ...

44. Millimeter-Wave Near-Field Measurements Using Coordinated Robotics
Topic: Robotics
Published: 12/1/2015
Authors: Joshua A Gordon, David R Novotny, Ronald Curtis Wittmann, Michael H Francis, Miranda Leigh Butler, Jeffrey R Guerrieri
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology(NIST) recently developed a new robotic scanning system for performing near-field measurements at millimeter-wave (mm-wave)frequencies above 100 GHz, the configurable robotic millimeterwave antenna (C ...

45. Mobile Manipulator Performance Measurement Towards Manufacturing Assembly Tasks
Topic: Robotics
Published: 7/13/2016
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Sebti Foufou, Steven Anthony Legowik, Tsai Hong Hong
Abstract: Mobile manipulator performance measurement research is relatively minimal as compared to that of robot arms. Measurement methods, such as optical tracking systems, are useful for measuring the performances of mobile manipulators, although at a much ...

46. 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 ...

47. Mobile Robot and Mobile Manipulator Research Towards ASTM F45 Standards Developments
Topic: Robotics
Published: 4/21/2016
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Tsai Hong Hong
Abstract: Performance standards for industrial mobile robots and mobile manipulators (robot arms onboard mobile robots) have only recently begun development. Low cost and standardized measurement techniques are needed to characterize system performance, compar ...

48. 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 ...

50. Performance Evaluation Methods for Human Detection and Tracking Systems for Robotic Applications
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8045
Topic: Robotics
Published: 3/14/2015
Authors: Michael O Shneier, Tsai Hong Hong, Kamel S Saidi, William P Shackleford
Abstract: Detecting and tracking people is becoming more important in robotic applications because of the increasing demand for collaborative work in which people interact closely with and in the same workspace as robots. New safety standards allow people ...
