41. Next Generation Packaging, Kitting, and Palletizing: Can one robot do it all?
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7866
Topic: Robotics
Published: 6/28/2012
Authors: Rajmohan Madhavan, Stephen B. Balakirsky, Craig I Schlenoff
Abstract: A seminar titled "Next Generation Packaging, Kitting, and Palletizing: Can one robot do it all?" was held on February 9th 2012 at the Material Handling Industry of America (MHIA) MODEX show in Atlanta, GA. The seminar primarily focused on whether sys ...

43. Performance Evaluation and Benchmarking of Robotic and Automation Systems
Topic: Robotics
Published: 3/31/2010
Authors: Rajmohan Madhavan, Elena R Messina, Angel P. Del Pobil
Abstract: The Technical Committee on Performance Evaluation and Benchmarking for Robotic and Automation Systems (TC-PEBRAS) was approved at the Technical Activities Board (TAB) meeting held at the 2009 International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) ...

44. Performance Evaluation of Intelligent Systems at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
Topic: Robotics
Published: 12/31/2010
Authors: Craig I Schlenoff, Harry A. Scott, Stephen B. Balakirsky
Abstract: The ability to comprehensively evaluate the quantitative and qualitative performance of an intelligent system is critical to accurately predicting how it will perform in various situations. The design of such evaluations is often as much of a researc ...

45. Performance Evaluation of Robotic Knowledge Representation (PERK)
Topic: Robotics
Published: 3/22/2012
Authors: Craig I Schlenoff, Sebti Foufou, Stephen B. Balakirsky
Abstract: In this paper, we explore some ways in which symbolic knowledge representations have been evaluated in the past and provide some thoughts on what should be considered when applying and evaluating these types of knowledge representations for real-time ...

46. 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 ...

47. Performance Measures Framework for Unmanned Systems (PerMFUS): Initial Perspective
Topic: Robotics
Published: 2/18/2010
Authors: Hui-Min Huang, Elena R Messina, Adam S Jacoff
Abstract: The performance of intelligent unmanned systems (UMS) must be able to be measured to ensure that they can meet the operational requirements. A generic framework to enable capturing and organizing the performance metrics are highly desirable. In thi ...

48. Performance Measures Framework for Unmanned Systems (PerMFUS): Models for Contextual Metrics
Topic: Robotics
Published: 7/31/2012
Authors: Hui-Min Huang, Elena R Messina, Adam S Jacoff, Robert Wade, Micheal McNail
Abstract: In the development of the Performance Measures Framework for Unmanned Systems (PerMFUS), we have established a multiple-axis performance metrics model for the unmanned systems (UMS). This model characterizes the UMS performance requirements by the m ...

49. 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 ...

50. RCS: A Reference Model Architecture for Intelligent Vehicle and Highway Systems
Topic: Robotics
Published: 6/5/1992
Authors: James S. Dr. Albus, Maris Juberts, Sandor S. Szabo
