USING STANDARDS IN A COMPETITION TO MEASURE AND SOLVE INDUSTRIAL ROBOTICS AGILITY CHALLENGES

Published

Author(s)

Anthony Downs, William Harrison, Craig I. Schlenoff

Abstract

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a set of draft standard test methods for measuring and promoting software agility in industrial robots. These test methods are being used as the basis for an upcoming competition called the Agile Robotics for Industrial Applications Competition (ARIAC). ARIAC is being used to promote and push forward the state of the art in software agility and enable technology transfer between academia and industry. This paper describes the background about the test methods, how they were developed, how they will be applied to the ARIAC Competition, and additional information about the ARIAC Competition.
