251. The Effect of Process Models on Short-term Prediction of Moving Objects for Autonomous Driving
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/28/2006
Authors: Rajmohan Madhavan, Craig I Schlenoff
Abstract: We are developing a novel framework, PRIDE (PRediction In Dynamic Environments), to perform moving object prediction (MOP) for autonomous ground vehicles. The underlying concept is based upon a multi-resolutional, hierarchical approach which incorpor ...

252. Performance Analysis of Unmanned Vehicle Positioning and Obstacle Mapping
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/27/2006
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Tsai Hong Hong, Rajmohan Madhavan, Tommy Chang, Harry A. Scott
Abstract: As unmanned ground vehicles take on more and more intelligent tasks, determination of potential obstacles and accurate estimation of their position become critical for successful navigation and path planning. The performance analysis of obstacle mapp ...

253. Learning in a Hierarchical Control System: 4D/RCS in the DARPA LAGR Program
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/26/2006
Authors: James S. Albus, Roger V Bostelman, Tommy Chang, Tsai Hong Hong, William P Shackleford, Michael O Shneier
Abstract: The Defense Applied Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Learning Applied to Ground Vehicles (LAGR) program aims to develop algorithms for autonomous vehicle navigation that learn how to operate in com-plex terrain. Over many years, the National Institut ...

254. 3D Range Imaging for Urban Search and Rescue Robotics Research
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/26/2006
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Tsai Hong Hong, Rajmohan Madhavan, Brian A Weiss
Abstract: Urban search and rescue (US&R) operations can be extremely dangerous for human rescuers during disaster response. Human task forces carrying necessary tools and equipment and having the required skills and techniques, are deployed for the rescue of v ...

255. A Framework for Autonomy Levels for Unmanned Systems (ALFUS)
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/26/2006
Authors: Hui-Min Huang, K Pavek, B Novak, James S. Albus, Elena R Messina

256. A Robot Ontology for Urban Search and Rescue
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/26/2006
Authors: Craig I Schlenoff, Elena R Messina
Abstract: The goal of this Robot Ontology effort is to develop and begin to populate a neutral knowledge representation (the data structures) capturing relevant information about robots and their capabilities to assist in the development, testing, and certific ...

257. Guidance and Performance Impact Testing to Support the use of Antivirus Software on SCADA and Industrial Control Systems
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/26/2006
Authors: Joseph A Falco, M Lochner, D Teumim
Abstract: End-users and vendors of control systems used in Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and Industrial Control System(s) (ICS) have expressed concerns that the deployment of antivirus software may interfere with the operation of time-critic ...

258. Intelligent Control and Tactical Behavior Development: A Long Term NIST Partnership with the Army
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/26/2006
Authors: James S. Albus, Tony Barbera
Abstract: For more than 15 years, the Intelligent Systems Division of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has worked closely with the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) on architectures and technology development for intelligent control of un ...

259. MOAST and USARSim-A Combined Framework for the Development and Testing of Autonomous Systems
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/26/2006
Authors: Christopher J. Scrapper Jr, Stephen B. Balakirsky, Elena R Messina
Abstract: Urban Search and Rescue Simulation (USARSim) is an open source package that provides a high-resolution, physics based simulation of robotic platforms. The package provides models of several common robotic platforms and sensors as well as sample world ...

260. Performance Standards for Urban Search and Rescue Robots
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/26/2006
Authors: Elena R Messina, Adam S Jacoff
Abstract: In this paper, we describe work in performance standards for urban search and rescue (USAR) robots begun in 2004 by the Department of Homeland Security. This program is being coordinated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and will ...
