41. 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 ...

42. 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 ...

47. Obstacle Detection and Avoidance from an Automated Guided Vehicle
Topic: Robotics
Published: 9/18/2014
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, William P Shackleford, Geraldine S Cheok
Abstract: Current automated guided vehicle (AGV) technology typically provides material handling flow along single or dual opposing-flow lanes in manufacturing and distribution facilities. An AGV stops for most any obstacle that may be in its path which then ...
