Evaluation Methods and Measurement Challenges for Industrial Exoskeletons

June 15, 2023
Ya-Shian Li-Baboud, Ann Virts, Roger Bostelman, Soocheol Yoon, Amaan Rahman, Lucia Rhode, Nishat Ahmed, Mili Shah
In recent years, exoskeleton test methods for industrial exoskeletons have evolved to include simulated laboratory and field environments. Physiological, kinematic and kinetic metrics, as well as subjective surveys are used to evaluate exoskeleton


November 3, 2022
Soocheol Yoon, Roger V. Bostelman, Ann Virts
With the advancement of factory logistics into the autonomous era comes the need to validate the safety and performance characteristics of Autonomous-Unmanned Ground Vehicles (A-UGVs) working in these application spaces ASTM Committee F45 has been

Feasibility of using depth cameras for evaluating human - exoskeleton interaction

October 14, 2022
Soocheol Yoon, Ya-Shian Li-Baboud, Ann Virts, Roger V. Bostelman, Milli Shah
With increased use of exoskeletons in a variety of fields such as industry, military, and health care, there is a need for measurement standards to understand the effects of exoskeletons on human motion. Optical tracking systems are the current gold

Design and Application of the Reconfigurable Mobile Manipulator Artifact (RMMA)

August 30, 2022
Roger V. Bostelman, Omar Aboul-Enein, Soocheol Yoon, Ya-Shian Li-Baboud
Robot arms onboard mobile bases, or mobile manipulators, are advancing and measurement of these systems is critical for robust safety and performance. As mobile manipulators flexibly fixture (i.e., do not fasten) to a worktable or object, they require

A Peg-in-Hole Test and Analysis Method for Exoskeleton Evaluation

March 7, 2022
Ann Virts, Roger V. Bostelman, Soocheol Yoon, Ya-Shian Li-Baboud, Mili Shah
Work-place MusculoSkeletal Disorders (WMSD) continue to be the most significant source of industrial work force injuries. Exoskeletons are emerging as personal protective equipment (PPE) for sustained, repetitive, or intensive industrial tasks. This

Experiments to Test the A-UGV Capabilities Standard

December 8, 2021
Soocheol Yoon, Roger V. Bostelman, Ann Virts
Automatic, Automated, or Autonomous - Unmanned Ground Vehicles (A-UGVs), as referred to by ASTM International Committee F45, are industrial vehicles that have capabilities to navigate, dock, avoid obstacles, and interact with other vehicles and systems all


November 19, 2020
Soocheol Yoon, Roger V. Bostelman
Automatic through autonomous - Unmanned Ground Vehicles (A-UGVs) have the potential to be applied over a wide range of manufacturing systems under industry 4.0 paradigm. In order to use A-UGVs efficiently in a manufacturing system, it is necessary to

Towards Measurement of Advanced Mobile Manipulator Performance for Assembly Applications

August 11, 2020
Roger V. Bostelman, YaShian Li-Baboud, Soocheol Yoon, Mili Shah, Omar Y. Aboul-Enein
Advanced mobile manipulators offer the manufacturing industry the potential of a highly flexible system to perform precision assembly tasks where the environment and the system are subject to uncertainties. Developing precision performance measurement

Towards Standard Exoskeleton Test Methods for Load Handling

May 9, 2019
Roger V. Bostelman, Ya-Shian Li-Baboud, Ann Virts, Soocheol Yoon, Mili Shah
Exoskeletons are now being marketed by several manufacturers and yet there are currently no standard test methods to compare exoskeletons to task. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has been a key contributor to the formation of a
