24. Benchmarking Robot Force Control Capabilities: Experimental Results
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8097
Topic: Manufacturing
Published: 1/7/2016
Authors: Joseph A Falco, Jeremy A Marvel, Richard J Norcross, Karl Van Wyk
Abstract: Metrics and test methods are needed to characterize the control capabilities of robots with both intrinsic and extrinsic force sensing. The availability of these benchmarks will motivate research product development, and provide a mechanism for repo ...

26. Grasping the Performance: Facilitating Replicable Performance Measures via Benchmarking and Standardized Methodologies
Topic: Manufacturing
Published: 12/31/2015
Authors: Joseph A Falco, Karl Van Wyk, Shuo Liu, Stefano Carpin
Abstract: The expectation for robots to work side-by-side with humans in unstructured environments while reliably grasping and manipulating objects is a distant reality. Multiple reasons account for this persistent gap - some are technological, whereas others ...

29. Tracking Industry Operations Activity: A Case Study of US Automotive Manufacturing
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1601
Topic: Manufacturing
Published: 12/15/2015
Authors: Douglas S Thomas, Anand Mani Kandaswamy
Abstract: Private firms, driven by competition, frequently achieve advances in efficiency on their own accord; however, there are often barriers to advancement that surpass the ability of any single firm. Additionally, competition, lack of communication, a ...
