251. Performance Evaluation of Temporal Range Registration for Autonomous Vehicle Navigation
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/28/2006
Authors: Rajmohan Madhavan, Elena R Messina
Abstract: In this article, we evaluate the performance of an iterative registration algorithm for position estimation of Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) operating in unstructured environments. Field data obtained from trials on UGVs traversing undulating outd ...

253. Collaborative Tactical Behaviors for Autonomous Ground and Air Vehicles
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/28/2006
Authors: James S. Albus, Anthony J Barbera, Harry A. Scott, Stephen B. Balakirsky
Abstract: Tactical behaviors for autonomous ground and air vehicles are an area of high interest to the Army. They are critical for the inclusion of robots in the Future Combat System (FCS). Tactical behaviors can be defined at multiple levels: at the Company, ...

254. Experiments toward Non-contact Safety Standards for Automated Industrial Vehicles
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 is explained upon comparing a new range camera to ground truth. Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) in factory-like environments may one day utilize this algorithm for advanc ...

256. 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 ...

257. 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 ...
