21. RoboCupRescue Interleague Challenge 2009: Bridging the gap between Simulation and Reality
Topic: Simulation
Published: 6/30/2010
Authors: Alexander Kleiner, Christopher Scrapper, Adam S Jacoff
Abstract: The RoboCupRescue initiative, represented by real-robot and simulation league, is designed to foster the research and development of innovative technologies and assistive capabilities to help responders mitigate an emergency response situation. This ...

22. Single-query, Bi-directional, Lazy Roadmap Planner Applied to Car-like Robots
Topic: Simulation
Published: 5/8/2010
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Denis Denis Dimitrov
Abstract: The Single-query, Bi-directional, Lazy roadmap (SBL) algorithm successfully builds upon the traditional Probabilistic Roadmaps (PRM) approach by introducing a number of related optimizations. While these optimizations are applicable in the domain of ...

23. Evaluating The RoboCup 2009 Virtual Robot Rescue Competition
Topic: Simulation
Published: 4/22/2010
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, S Carpin, Arnoud Visser
Abstract: The 2009 RoboCup Competitions took place in Graz Austria in July of 2009. The Virtual Robot Rescue Competition included 11 competitors from 10 different countries. The main objective of this competition is to utilize teams of robots to perform an urb ...

24. Modeling of the Temperature Field in the Chip and in the Tool in High-speed Machining of a Carbon Steel: Effect of Pearlite to Austenite Phase Transition in AISI 1075
Topic: Simulation
Published: 4/7/2010
Authors: Timothy J Burns, Steven P Mates, Richard L. Rhorer, Eric Paul Whitenton, Debasis Basak, Russell Hugh McFadden
Abstract: A one-dimensional transient finite-difference model for the temperature distribution in orthogonal metal cutting, which was originally developed by Boothroyd, and then improved upon by Tlusty, is used to calculate the temperature field in the chip an ...

25. A RESTful Web Service for Virtual Supply Chain Time Management
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7680
Topic: Simulation
Published: 3/25/2010
Author: Guillaume Radde
Abstract: A common issue when building distributed simulations is the issue of time management. Each discrete event simulation has its own notion of time, and a mechanism needs to be set up to allow each simulation to run at the same pace. Different architectu ...

26. Interoperability for Simulation of Sustainable Manufacturing
Topic: Simulation
Published: 2/24/2010
Authors: Guodong Shao, Nils Erik Gunnar Bengtsson, Bjorn J. Johansson
Abstract: Sustainability has become a very significant research topic, it impacts many different manufacturing industries. To achieve sustainable manufacturing, designing manufacturing systems that have less negative impact on the environment is critical. Mode ...

Topic: Simulation
Published: 1/19/2010
Authors: Deogratias Kibira, Swee Kong Leong
Abstract: This paper describes the construction of an automotive assembly line simulation where manufacturing data is defined using the Core Manufacturing Simulation Data (CMSD) information model. This work is part of the Virtual Manufacturing Environment (VME ...

28. From Simulation to Real Robots with Predictable Results: Methods and Examples
Topic: Simulation
Published: 12/1/2009
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, S Carpin, George Dimitoglou, Benjamin Balaguer
Abstract: From a theoretical perspective, one may easily argue (as we will in this chapter) that simulation accelerates the algorithm development cycle. However, in practice many in the robotics development community share the sentiment that "Simula-tion ...

Topic: Simulation
Published: 10/15/2009
Authors: Swee Kong Leong, Guodong Shao, Nils Erik Gunnar Bengtsson
Abstract: A major aerospace company operates large factories that involve thousands of component parts, subassemblies, major sub-systems, tools, fixtures, and material handling equipments to assemble commercial airplanes every day. They are considered mobile a ...

30. Representing Layout Information in the CMSD Specification
Topic: Simulation
Published: 8/26/2009
Authors: Frank H Riddick, Yung-Tsun Tina Lee
Abstract: Developing mechanisms for the efficient exchange of information between simulations and other manufacturing tools is a critical problem. For many areas of manufacturing, neither representations for the information nor mechanisms for exchanging the in ...
