281. The Effect of Process Models on Short-Term Prediction of Moving Objects for Autonomous Driving
Topic: Energy
Published: 12/1/2005
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 ...

282. Temporal Range Registration for Unmanned Ground and Aerial Vehicles
Topic: Energy
Published: 11/30/2005
Authors: Rajmohan Madhavan, Tsai Hong Hong, Elena R Messina
Abstract: An iterative temporal registration algorithm is presented in this article for registering 8 3D range images obtained from unmanned ground and aerial vehicles traversing unstructured 9 environments. We are primarily motivated by the development of 3D ...

283. Design and Modeling of Thermally Actuated MEMS Nanopositioners
Topic: Energy
Published: 11/11/2005
Authors: Sebastien Bergna, Jason John Gorman, Nicholas G Dagalakis
Abstract: Several micro-scale nanopositioning mechanisms, or MEMS nanopositioners, have been developed for application in nanotechnology and optical sensors. In this paper, the design and modeling of these devices is presented along with initial experimental r ...

284. Moisture Diffusion and Temperature History Models for Thin Organic Coatings Exposed to Ambient Air
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/20/2005
Authors: William C. Thomas, Christopher C White, Mark R VanLandingham
Abstract: Baseline models are developed for predicting moisture concentration and temperature in extremely thin polymeric films bonded to impermeable substrate materials. These simplified models are based on analytical rather than numerical solutions to circum ...

285. Towards AGV Safety and Navigation Advancement - Obstacle Detection Using a TOF Range Camera*
Topic: Energy
Published: 7/20/2005
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 using a 3D real-time range camera is the subject of this paper. Our approach has been tested successfully on British safety s ...

286. Knowledge Representation and Decision Making for Mobile Robots
Topic: Energy
Published: 7/13/2005
Authors: Elena R Messina, Stephen B. Balakirsky
Abstract: Knowledge is central to a mobile robot's ability to carry out its missions and adapt to changes in the environment it is traversing. The knowledge subsystem must support acquisition of information from external sources, maintain prior knowledge, in ...

287. Viscoelastic Characterization of Polymers Using Instrumented Indentation I. Quasi-static Testing
Topic: Energy
Published: 7/13/2005
Authors: Mark R VanLandingham, N-K Chang, P L Drzal, Christopher C White, S-H Chang
Abstract: The use of instrumented indentation to characterize the mechanical response of polymeric materials was studied. A model based on contact between a rigid probe and a linear viscoelastic material was used to calculate values for creep compliance and s ...

288. Viscoelastic Characterization of Polymers Using Instrumented Indentation II. Dynamic Testing
Topic: Energy
Published: 7/13/2005
Authors: Christopher C White, Mark R VanLandingham, P L Drzal, N-K Chang, S-H Chang
Abstract: Dynamic nanoindentation was preformed on a cured epoxy, poly(methyl methacrylate), and poly(dimethyl siloxane) or PDMS. These samples, two glassy polymers and a rubbery material are used to illustrate the agreement between classical rheological instr ...

289. HiCASS Target Tracking Sensor Study
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7220
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/20/2005
Author: Richard J Norcross
Abstract: The High Capacity Alongside Sea base Sustainment (HiCASS) program intends to generate substantial improvements in skin-to-skin at-sea replenishment. HiCASS requires real-time tracking and dynamic load position sensing.
