    • 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 ...
    • Modeling of the Natural Product Deboning Process Using Biological and Human Models 

      Daley, Wayne; He, Tian; Lee, Kok-Meng; Sandlin, Melissa (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 1999-09)
      One critical area in automation for commercial deboning systems for meat processing, is the inability of existing equipment to adapt to varying sizes and shapes of products. This usually results in less than desirable ...
    • A Network-based Approach for Assessing Co-Operating Manned and Unmanned Systems (MUMS) 

      Weiss, Lora G. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-09)
      Traditionally, robots have been programmed to do precisely what their human operators instruct them to do, but more recently, they have become more sophisticated, intelligent, and autonomous. Once they reach a sufficiently ...
    • 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 ...
