281. USARSim: Providing a Framework for Multi-Robot Performance Evaluation
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/31/2006
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Christopher J. Scrapper Jr, S Carpin, M L Lewis
Abstract: Research efforts in urban search and rescue robotics have grown substantially in recent years. Two important robotic competitions (a robot physical league and a high-level infrastructure simulation league) were established in 2001 under the RoboCup u ...

282. Recommended Objective Test Procedures for Road Departure Crash Warning Systems
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7288
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/6/2006
Authors: Sandor S. Szabo, Richard J Norcross
Abstract: Under the auspices of the Department of Transportation Intelligent Vehicle Initiative, the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) is evaluating the safety benefits of Road Departure Crash Warning Systems (RDCWS). These systems wa ...

283. An Independent Measurement System for Performance Evaluation of Road Departure Crash Warning Systems
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7287
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/4/2006
Authors: Sandor S. Szabo, Richard J Norcross
Abstract: The Independent Measurement System (IMS) is a general-purpose measurement system designed for collecting and analyzing data needed for evaluation of intelligent vehicle systems. The IMS consists of sensors, data collection hardware and analysis soft ...

284. Identifying Sensory Processing Requirements for an On-Road Driving Application of 4D/RCS
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7167
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/4/2006
Authors: John A Horst, Anthony J Barbera, Craig I Schlenoff, David Aha
Abstract: A key challenge when applying architectures to real-time intelligent control problems is defining the hardware requirements for their sensory processing tasks.  Identifying these tasks is also difficult, necessitating a detailed task analysis an ...

285. 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 ...

286. 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 ...

287. 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 ...

288. 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 ...

289. 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 ...

290. 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 ...
