Events and seminars at School of Information Science, Computer and Electrical Engineering 2014

September 10 Seminar with Roger V. Bostelman, from NIST National, Institute of Standards and Technology, Intelligent Systems Division, USA will give a seminar talk entitled

NIST technologies and AGV safety and performance measurement research

at 10:15 in Haldasalen, house Visionen (J on campus map). Welcome!

The United States of America’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has been around since 1901 and is one of the oldest U.S. physical science laboratories.  Innovations and industrial competitiveness are key to the mission of NIST and are achieved by advancing measurement science, standards, and technology.  Roger Bostelman is a senior engineer at NIST and will discuss two of his inventions, namely the RoboCrane and Home Lift, Position and Rehabilitation (HLPR) Chair, and NIST's autonomous vehicles activities over many years, including automated guided vehicle (AGV) safety and performance measurements.  These measurement and other activities have proven useful to change the U.S. AGV safety standard and begin the new international AGV performance standard.  Also, preliminary safety measurements of robot arms mounted on AGVs will be discussed.

Roger has been a Project Manager in the Intelligent Systems Division at NIST for at least 25 of his 36 years at NIST. He managed the Intelligent Control of Mobility Systems Program and many projects such as: DARPA Learning Applied to Ground Robots (LAGR), NIST Industrial Autonomous Vehicle Project, USMC Air Transportable Expeditionary Crane Project, US Navy Mobile Offshore Base Project, NIST Healthcare Mobility Project, and many others. Roger has designed, built and tested mechanical systems and their interface electronics on robot cranes, arms and vehicles including an automated HMMWV, HLPR Chair, Flying Carpet, and several RoboCranes. He has over 80 publications in books, journals and conference proceedings and he holds 7 patents with one pending
