• Automation of the Bird Shoulder Joint Deboning 

      Zhou, Debao; Holmes, Jonathan; Holcombe, Wiley; McMurray, Gary (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2007-09)
      Poultry deboning processing is one of the largest employers of people in the United States. It involves mainly manual processes with only limited use of fixed automation. The main difficulty in this task is the unstructured ...
    • Cutting, ‘by Pressing and Slicing’, Applied to Robotic Cutting Bio-materials, Part I: Modeling of Stress Distribution 

      Zhou, Debao; Claffee, Mark R.; Lee, Kok-Meng; McMurray, Gary V. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2006-05)
      Bio-material cutting, such as meat deboning, is one the most common operations in food processing. Automating this process using robotic devices with closed-loop force control has shown some promise. The control of the ...

      Zhou, Debao; Claffee, Mark R.; Lee, Kok-Meng; McMurray, Gary V. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2006-05)
      The applications of robotics are becoming more and more common in non-traditional industries such as the medical industry including robotic surgery and sample microtoming as well as food industry that include the ...
    • Deep Segments: Comparisons between Scenes and their Constituent Fragments using Deep Learning 

      Doshi, Jigar; Mason, Celeste; Wagner, Alan; Kira, Zsolt (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-09)
      We examine the problem of visual scene understanding and abstraction from first person video. This is an important problem and successful approaches would enable complex scene characterization tasks that go beyond ...
    • Kinematics and Verification of a Deboning Device 

      Zhou, Debao; Daley, Wayne; McMurray, Gary (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-08)
      Poultry deboning process is one of the largest employers in the United States and mainly involves human workers due to the unstructured nature of the task. For the automation of this process, a cutting device with the ...
    • Uncalibrated Eye-in-Hand Visual Servoing 

      Piepmeier, Jenelle Armstrong; Gumpert, Ben A.; Lipkin, Harvey (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2002-05)
      This paper presents uncalibrated control schemes for vision-guided robotic tracking of a moving target using a moving camera. These control methods are applied to an uncalibrated robotic system with eye-in-hand visual ...
