Adam S. Jacoff, Richard Candell, Anthony J. Downs, Hui-Min Huang, Kenneth E. Kimble, Kamel S. Saidi, Ann M. Virts
This paper reports on three measurement science field exercises for evaluating ground, aerial, and aquatic robots. These events, conducted from February to June 2017, were conducted in close co-ordination with the responder community, standards

Performance Evaluation of Human Detection Systems for Robot Safety

January 22, 2016
Author(s)
William P. Shackleford, Geraldine S. Cheok, Tsai H. Hong, Kamel S. Saidi, Michael O. Shneier
Detecting and tracking people is becoming more important in robotic applications because of the increasing demand for collaborative work in which people interact closely with and in the same workspace as robots. New safety standards allow people to work
