Assessing Industrial Robot agility through international competitions

August 31, 2021
Author(s)
Anthony Downs, Zeid Kootbally, William S. Harrison, Pavlo Piliptchak, Brian Antonishek, Murat Aksu, Craig I. Schlenoff
Manufacturing and Industrial Robotics have reached a point where in order to be more useful to small and medium sized manufacturers, the systems must become more agile and able to adapt to changes in the environment. This paper describes the process for

Workshop Report: Test Methods and Metrics for Effective HRI in Real-World Human-Robot Teams, ACM/IEEE Human-Robot Interaction Conference, 2020 (Virtual)

February 8, 2021
Author(s)
Shelly Bagchi, Jeremy Marvel, Megan L. Zimmerman, Murat Aksu, Brian Antonishek
This report details the second annual, full-day workshop exploring the metrology necessary for repeatably and independently assessing the performance of robotic systems in real-world human-robot interaction (HRI) scenarios. This workshop continues the

Workshop Report: Test Methods and Metrics for Effective HRI in Collaborative Human-Robot Teams, ACM/IEEE Human-Robot Interaction Conference, 2019

December 28, 2020
Author(s)
Shelly Bagchi, Murat Aksu, Megan L. Zimmerman, Jeremy Marvel, Brian Antonishek
Verified and validated test methods, being necessary to measure the performance of complex systems, are important tools for driving innovation, benchmarking and improving performance, and establishing trust in collaborative human-robot teams. This full-day

Dynamic 3D Visualizations of Complex Function Surfaces Using X3DOM and WebGL

June 1, 2015
Author(s)
Bonita V. Saunders, Brian Antonishek, Qiming Wang, Bruce R. Miller
In 1997 the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) embarked on a huge project to replace one of the most cited resources for mathematical, physical and engineering scientists, the Handbook of Mathematical Functions with Formulas, Graphs, and

Adaptive Composite B-Spline Grid Generation for Interactive 3D Visualizations

January 22, 2014
Author(s)
Bonita V. Saunders, Qiming Wang, Brian Antonishek
We describe an adaptive grid generation technique based on the composition of tensor product B-spline mappings, T and Phi, where Phi maps the unit square onto itself and T maps the unit square onto the desired physical domain. Variational methods are used

Creating HAVIC: Heterogeneous Audio Visual Internet Collection

Author(s)
Stephanie Strassel, Amanda Morris, Jonathan G. Fiscus, Christopher Caruso, Haejoong Lee, Paul D. Over, James Fiumara, Barbara L. Shaw, Brian Antonishek, Martial Michel
Linguistic Data Consortium and the National Institute of Standards and Technology are collaborating to create a large, heterogeneous annotated multimodal corpus to support research in multimodal event detection and related technologies. The HAVIC

TRECVID 2011 -- An Overview of the Goals, Tasks, Data, Evaluation Mechanisms, and Metrics

May 8, 2012
Author(s)
Paul D. Over, George M. Awad, Jonathan G. Fiscus, Brian Antonishek, Martial Michel, Alan Smeaton, Wessel Kraaij, Georges Quenot
The TREC Video Retrieval Evaluation (TRECVID) 2011 was a TREC-style video analysis and retrieval evaluation, the goal of which remains to promote progress in content-based exploitation of digital video via open, metrics-based evaluation. Over the last ten

Terrance Fong, Jean C. Scholtz, Julie Shah, Lorenzo Fluckiger, Clayton Kunz, David Lee, John Schreiner, Michael Siegel, Laura Hiatt, Illah Nourbakhsh, Reid Simmons, Robert Ambrose, Robert Burridge, Brian Antonishek, Magda Bugajska, Alan Schultz, Gregory Trafton
The Peer-toPeer Human-Robot interaction (P2P HRI) project is developing techniques to improve task coordination and collaboration between human and robot partners. Our work is motivated by the need to develop effective human-robot teams for space mission

Development of an Evaluation Method for Acceptable Usability

February 27, 2007
Author(s)
Brian C. Stanton, Brian Antonishek, Jean C. Scholtz
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) conducted three workshops with First Responders to determine requirements for robots used in Urban Search and Rescue (USAR). These requirements were further prioritized by the responders. NIST has

Operator Interventions in Autonomous Off-Road Driving: Effects of Terrain

October 1, 2004
Author(s)
Jean C. Scholtz, Brian Antonishek, J D. Young
We participated in a field study in two terrains, arid and wooded, and compared the number and type of interventions the operators made. We also analyzed the amount of time needed to gain situation awareness in the different terrains.

Evaluation of Operator Interventions in Autonomous Off-Road Driving

September 1, 2003
Author(s)
Jean C. Scholtz, Brian Antonishek, J D. Young
We participated in field trials of a semi-autonomous vehicle. This gave us an opportunity to collect data on operator interventions. In this paper we present an analysis of why and how operators intervene and examine the efficiency of these interventions.
