Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7667
Topic: Robotics
Published: 3/3/2010
Authors: Joshua Johnson, Roger V Bostelman
Abstract: The Home Lift, Position and Rehabilitation (HLPR) Chair, developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), has unique capabilities and a unique shape as compared to conventional wheelchairs and powered chairs. The evaluation of ...

62. Survey of Industrial Manipulation Technologies for Autonomous Assembly Applications
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7844
Topic: Robotics
Published: 3/16/2012
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Joseph A Falco
Abstract: The need for agile manufacturing is moving the manufacturing industry towards more flexible and complex assembly operations involving, for example: - multiple manipulators providing flexible part manipulation and fixturing; - assembling parts whil ...

63. Texture-Independent Vision-Based Closed-Loop Fuzzy Controllers for Navigation Tasks
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5637
Topic: Robotics
Published: 4/1/1995
Authors: S R Kundur, Daniel Raviv
Abstract: This paper deals with vision-based closed-loop control schemes for collision avoidance as well as maintenance of clearance in a-priori unknown textured environments. These control schemes are based on fuzzy logic and employ a visual motion cue, we ...

65. Toward Better Integration of Vehicle Assembly Production Systems
Topic: Robotics
Published: 11/15/2012
Authors: Jorge Arinez, John L Michaloski, Frederick M Proctor, William G Rippey, C Jerry Yen
Abstract: In today's manufacturing world, system integration often necessitates composing systems of technology that are not designed to interoperate with each other. This inherent incompatibility results in redundant, non-value added work that is required fo ...

67. Towards Mobile Manipulator Safety Standards
Topic: Robotics
Published: 10/24/2013
Authors: Jeremy A Marvel, Roger V Bostelman
Abstract: We present an overview of the current safety standards for industrial robots and automated guided vehicles (AGVs), and describe how they relate to the safety concerns of mobile manipulators (robot arms mounted on mobile bases) in modern manufacturing ...

69. Using Competitions to Advance the Development of Standard Test Methods for Response Robots
Topic: Robotics
Published: 5/17/2012
Authors: Adam S Jacoff, Raymond K. Sheh, Ann M Virts, Tetsuya Kimura, Johannes Pellenz, Soren Schwertfeger, Jackrit Suthakorn
Abstract: Competitions are an effective aid to the development and dissemination of standard test methods, especially in rapidly developing, highly varied fields such as Urban Search and Rescue robotics. By exposing the development process to highly developmen ...
