    This paper discusses the potential use of an on-line computer aid for the initial training of robot technicians. The system under investigation, Rhino-Aid, uses computer graphics and a computer-implemented advisor model to aid Rhino robot technicians during training. The graphics part of Rhino-Aid consists of two screens, a top view and a side view, which provide simulated displays of the robot fr... View full abstract»

  • Use of voice recognition for control of a robotic welding workcell

    Publication Year: 1987, Page(s):16 - 18
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (320 KB)

    This paper describes work underway to evaluate the effectiveness of voice recognition systems as an element in the control of a robotic welding workcell. Factors being considered for control include program editor access security, preoperation checklist requirements, welding process variable control, and robot manipulator motion overrides. In the latter two categories, manual vocal control is bein... View full abstract»

    This paper addresses the general approach to the problem of designing an interactive environment through which graphical descriptions of dynamic systems, such as block diagrams and signal flow graphs, may be input, manipulated, transformed, renumbered, and output at a modern graphics workstation. It is shown that a data-base environment, in conjunction with an icon-driven user interface, is an eff... View full abstract»

  • Task and knowledge analysis in coal-fired power plants

    Publication Year: 1987, Page(s):26 - 30
    Cited by:  Papers (19)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (563 KB)

    An application-oriented procedure for task and knowledge analyses was developed and applied in coal-fired power plants. After introducing operator dialogs in such plants, the proposed task and knowledge analysis procedure is described. The development and structure of state- and failure-oriented questionnaires as well as results from interviews with engineers and operators are explained. View full abstract»

  • Design of an intelligent tutoring system for aircraft recognition

    Publication Year: 1987, Page(s):31 - 35
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (561 KB)

    A microcomputer-based intelligent tutoring system for teaching aircraft recognition in support of air defense training is described. An overview of the conceptual design is presented, and the main components are described. The system presents realistic images to the student, dynamically assesses student knowledge, provides individualized feedback, and allows limited student control of the educatio...

    This paper presents an introduction to local area communication networks and discusses the local area networks that are particularly suitable for manufacturing and office systems. The delay and throughput performance of these networks is analyzed. The networks are then compared with respect to their performance on such issues as reliability, ability to carry multiple traffic types, throughput, and... View full abstract»
