371. Towards an Approach for Knowledge-based Road Detection
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/26/2006
Authors: Mike Foedisch, M Lochner, D Teumim
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 ...

372. Towards realization of a large-area, LED-based solar simulator
Topic: Energy
Published: 11/27/2011
Authors: Behrang H Hamadani, Kangbin Chua, John F Roller, Howard W Yoon, Brian P Dougherty
Abstract: LED-based solar simulators have shown great promise as alternative light sources for indoor testing of PV cells as compared to their traditional counterparts. However, large-area uniform illumination more suitable for larger cells and module measurem ...

373. Training and Optimization of Operating Parameters for Flash LADAR Cameras
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7405
Topic: Energy
Published: 4/10/2007
Authors: M Price, J Kenney, Roger D Eastman, Tsai Hong Hong
Abstract: Flash LADAR cameras based on continuous-wave, time-of-flight range measurement deliver fast 3D imaging for robot applications including mapping, localization, obstacle detection and object recognition. The accuracy of the range values produced depend ...

374. 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 ...

375. Transient Suppression for Computer-based Systems
Topic: Energy
Published: 4/1/1990
Author: Francois D. Martzloff

376. Transitory Temperatures of Organic-Film Coated Specimens under Outdoor Exposure
Topic: Energy
Published: 3/2/2012
Authors: William C. Thomas, Christopher C White, Walter Eric Byrd
Abstract: A mathematical model is presented and validated for predicting the temperature of thin polymeric films bonded to substrate materials. The National Institute of Standards and Technology provided specimen temperature and simultaneous weather data for t ...

377. Traversability Metrics for Urban Search and Rescue Robots on Rough Terrain
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/31/2007
Authors: V Molino, Rajmohan Madhavan, Elena R Messina, Anthony J Downs, Adam S Jacoff, Stephen B. Balakirsky
Abstract: Rough terrain, such as the rubble that we would expect to find in urban disaster areas, will likely impede robot mobility. The goal of this paper is to find methods for quantifying the difficulty a robot should encounter traversing a region of rough ...

378. USA s 3Rs (Recycling, Reuse, Reduce) Activity
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/27/2010
Author: John V Messina

379. 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 ...

380. Unstructured Facility Navigation by Applying the NIST 4D/RCS Architecture
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/5/2006
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Tsai Hong Hong, Tommy Chang, William P Shackleford, Michael O Shneier
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology s (NIST) Intelligent Systems Division (ISD) is working with the material handling industry, specifically on automated guided vehicles, to develop next generation vehicles. ISD is also a participant i ...
