      Kunz, Tobias; Stilman, Mike (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011)
      This paper presents a method to generate the time-optimal trajectroy that exactly follows a given differentiable joint-space path within given bounds on joint accelerations and velocities. We also present a path ...
    • Older Adults' Acceptance of Assistive Robots for the Home 

      Mitzner, Tracy L.; Smarr, Cory-Ann; Beer, Jenay M.; Chen, Tiffany L.; Springman, Jennifer Megan; Prakash, Akanksha; Kemp, Charles C.; Rogers, Wendy A. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011)
    • Ach: IPC for Real-Time Robot Control 

      Dantam, Neil; Stilman, Mike (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011)
      We present a new Inter-Process Communication (IPC) mechanism and library. Ach is uniquely suited for coordinating perception, control drivers, and algorithms in real-time systems that sample data from physical processes. ...
    • Efficient Opening Detection 

      Levihn, Martin; Stilman, Mike (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011)
      We present an efficient and powerful algorithm for detecting openings. Openings indicate the existence of a new path for the robot. The reliable detection of new openings is especially relevant to the domain of Navigation ...
    • Turning Paths Into Trajectories Using Parabolic Blends 

      Kunz, Tobias; Stilman, Mike (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011)
      We present an approach for converting a path of multiple continuous linear segments into a trajectory that satisfies velocity and acceleration constraints and closely follows the given path without coming to a complete ...
    • Design and Development of a Dynamically-Balancing Holonomic Robot 

      Reynolds-Haertle, Saul; Stilman, Mike (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011)
      This paper describes the design, control, and construction of Golem Wing, the first vehicle which both balances dynamically and has entirely holonomic ground movement. A nonstandard linear arrangement of mecanum wheels ...
    • Detecting Partially Occluded Objects via Segmentation and Validation 

      Levihn, Martin; Dutton, Matthew; Trevor, Alexander J. B.; Stilman, Mike (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012)
      This paper presents a novel algorithm: Verfied Partial Object Detector (VPOD) for accurate detection of partially occluded objects such as furniture in 3D point clouds. VPOD is implemented and validated on real sensor ...
    • Mobile Manipulation in Domestic Environments Using A Low Degree of Freedom Manipulator 

      Huckaby, Jacob; Nieto-Granda, Carlos; Rogers, John G.; Trevor, Alexander J. B.; Cosgun, Akansel; Christensen, Henrik I. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012)
      We present a mobile manipulation system used by the Georgia Tech team in the RoboCup@Home 2010 competition. An overview of the system is provided, including the approach taken for manipulation, SLAM, object detection, ...
    • Dynamic Characterization of KUKA Light-Weight Robot Manipulators 

      Huckaby, Jacob; Christensen, Henrik I. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012)
      High precision tasks are an important part of the manufacturing industry. For example, safety constraints require that some manufacturing must be done to a very high degree of accuracy. Robotics and automation are well ...
    • Algorithms for Linguistic Robot Policy Inference from Demonstration of Assembly Tasks 

      Dantam, Neil; Essa, Irfan; Stilman, Mike (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012)
      We describe several algorithms used for the inference of linguistic robot policies from human demonstration. First, tracking and match objects using the Hungarian Algorithm. Then, we convert Regular Expressions to ...
