261. 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 ...

262. 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 ...

263. Safety Standard Advancement Toward Mobile Robot Use Near Humans
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/26/2006
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Tsai Hong Hong, Rajmohan Madhavan, Tommy Chang
Abstract: As mobile robots have increasingly improved onboard intelligence, they are being used in more flexible manufacturing, warehouse and/or military environments where humans may intervene and interact with these robots frequently causing increased hazard ...

264. Towards a Tool for Performance Evaluation of Autonomous Vehicle Navigation in Dynamic, On-Road Environments
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/26/2006
Authors: Craig I Schlenoff, Jerome G.B. Ajot, Rajmohan Madhavan
Abstract: We are developing a novel framework, PRIDE (PRediction In Dynamic Environments), to perform moving object prediction (MOP) to assist unmanned ground vehicles in performing path planning within dynamic environments. In addition to predicting the locat ...

265. Towards an Approach for Knowledge-Based Road Detection
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/26/2006
Authors: Mike Foedisch, Craig I Schlenoff, Michael O Shneier
Abstract: Our previous work on road detection suggests the usage of prior knowledge in order to improve performance. In this paper we will explain our motivation for a novel approach, define requirements and point out issues, particularly concerning the repres ...

267. Trajectory Generation for an On-Road Autonomous Vehicle
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7262
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/26/2006
Authors: John A Horst, Anthony J Barbera
Abstract: We describe an algorithm that generates a smooth trajectory (position, velocity, and acceleration) for a non-holonomic vehicle autonomously navigating within the constraints of lanes in a road. The technique models both vehicle paths and lane segment ...

268. Using 4D/RCS to Address AI Knowledge Integration
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/26/2006
Authors: Craig I Schlenoff, James S. Albus, Elena R Messina, Tony Barbera, Rajmohan Madhavan, Stephen B. Balakirsky
Abstract: In this paper, we show how 4D/RCS incorporates and integrates multiple types of disparate knowledge representation techniques into a common, unifying architecture. 4D/RCS is based on the supposition that different knowledge representation techniques ...

269. Validating Portability of Step-NC Tool Center Programming
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/26/2006
Authors: Sid Venkatesh, David Odendahl, Xun W. Xu, John L Michaloski, Frederick M Proctor, Thomas Rollin Kramer
Abstract: A joint effort between Boeing and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) was undertaken for validating and evaluating STEP AP238 (STEP-NC) Conformance Class 1 (CC1) for 5-axis machining. STEP-NC is a new manufacturing standard to s ...

270. Entity Knowledge Model Supporting Intelligent Systems
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/20/2006
Authors: Hui-Min Huang, James S. Albus, Elena R Messina, Harry A. Scott, Maris Juberts
Abstract: Intelligent systems operate in uncertain and complex environments. In order to achieve their goals, these systems require rich and updated knowledge about the environment and about their own capabilities to enable proper decision making processes. A ...
