1. Obstacle Detection and Avoidance from an Automated Guided Vehicle
Topic: Robotics
Published: 9/18/2014
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, William P Shackleford, Geraldine S Cheok
Abstract: Current automated guided vehicle (AGV) technology typically provides material handling flow along single or dual opposing-flow lanes in manufacturing and distribution facilities. An AGV stops for most any obstacle that may be in its path which then ...

2. Collaborative Robotics: A Gateway into Factory Automation
Topic: Robotics
Published: 9/3/2014
Author: Jeremy A Marvel
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=916485

3. Control Fusion for Safe Multi-robot Coordination
Topic: Robotics
Published: 5/9/2014
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Jeremy A Marvel
Abstract: Future smart manufacturing systems will include more complex coordination of mobile manipulators (e.g., robot arms mounted on mobile bases). The National Institute of Standards and Technology, Performance of Collaborative Robot Systems Project has b ...

4. A Roadmap to Advance Measurement Science in Robot Dexterity and Manipulation
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7993
Topic: Robotics
Published: 5/1/2014
Authors: Joseph A Falco, Jeremy A Marvel, Elena R Messina
Abstract: In order for robots to expand their applicability within manufacturing operations, their dexterity needs to advance considerably. There is active research in many areas that is contributing to creating a new generation of much more dexterous arms an ...

6. Methods for improving visibility measurement standards of powered industrial vehicles
Topic: Robotics
Published: 2/28/2014
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Jochen Teizer, Soumitry J. Ray, Mike Agronin, Dominic Albanese
Abstract: Poor visibility of powered industrial vehicles, such as forklifts, used in industry is often the cause of accidents that include pedestrians. Current standards allow up to 20% non-visible regions for forklifts where measurement of these regions is p ...

7. An Ontology Based Approach to Action Verification for Agile Manufacturing
Topic: Robotics
Published: 1/10/2014
Authors: Zeid Kootbally, Stephen B. Balakirsky
Abstract: Many of today's robotic work cells are unable to detect when an action failure has occurred. This results in faulty products being sent down the line, and/or downtime for the cell as failures are detected and corrected. This article examines a novel ...

8. A Simulated Sensor-based Approach for Kit Building Applications
Topic: Robotics
Published: 12/20/2013
Authors: Zeid Kootbally, Craig I Schlenoff, Theodore J Weisman, Stephen B. Balakirsky, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Anthony Pietromartire
Abstract: Kit building or kitting is a process in which individually separate but related items are grouped, packaged, and supplied together as one unit (kit). This paper describes advances in developing sensing/control and parts detection technologies enablin ...

9. Towards Mobile Manipulator Safety Standards
Topic: Robotics
Published: 10/24/2013
Authors: Jeremy A Marvel, Roger V Bostelman
Abstract: We present an overview of the current safety standards for industrial robots and automated guided vehicles (AGVs), and describe how they relate to the safety concerns of mobile manipulators (robot arms mounted on mobile bases) in modern manufacturing ...

10. A Literature Review of Sensor Ontologies for Manufacturing Applications
Topic: Robotics
Published: 10/23/2013
Authors: Craig I Schlenoff, Tsai Hong Hong, Roger D. Eastman
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to review existing sensor and sensor network ontologies to understand whether they can be reused as a basis for a manufacturing perception sensor ontology, or if the existing ontologies hold lessons for the development of ...
