251. Intelligent Systems for Construction and Long Range Exploration on Planetary Surfaces
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/28/2006
Author: James S. Albus
Abstract: For efficient and effective operations on Lunar and/or Martian surfaces, it will be necessary to develop robots with the ability to successfully perform extended missions of exploration and complex tasks of construction without imposing a large workl ...

252. Obstacle Detection using a Time-of -Flight Range Camera for Automated Guided Vehicle Safety and Navigation
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/28/2006
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Tsai Hong Hong, Rajmohan Madhavan
Abstract: The performance evaluation of an obstacle detection and segmentation algorithm for Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) navigation in factory-like environments using a 3D real-time range camera is the subject of this paper. Our approach has been tested suc ...

253. 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 ...

254. 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 ...

255. 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 ...

256. 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 ...

257. 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

258. 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 ...

259. 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 ...

260. 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 ...
