  • Flynn, Anita M. (1995-06-01)
    This report describes development of micro-fabricated piezoelectric ultrasonic motors and bulk-ceramic piezoelectric ultrasonic motors. Ultrasonic motors offer the advantage of low speed, high torque operation without ...
  • Teitelman, Warren (1966-09-01)
    PILOT is a programming system constructed in LISP. It is designed to facilitate the development of programs by easing the familiar sequence: write some code, run the program, make some changes, write some more code, ...
  • Buckley, Stephen J. (1987-01-01)
    This thesis presents a new high level robot programming system. The programming system can be used to construct strategies consisting of compliant motions, in which a moving robot slides along obstacles in its ...
  • Chapman, David (1985-11-01)
    The problem of achieving conjunctive goals has been central to domain independent planning research; the nonlinear constraint-posting approach has been most successful. Previous planners of this type have been comlicated, ...
  • Fahlman, Scott E. (1973-05-01)
    This paper describes BUILD, a computer program which generates plans for building specified structures out of simple objects such as toy blocks. A powerful heuristic control structure enables BUILD to use a number of ...
  • Siegel, David M. (1991-05-01)
    This report explores methods for determining the pose of a grasped object using only limited sensor information. The problem of pose determination is to find the position of an object relative to the hand. The information ...
  • Beymer, David (1996-03-28)
    The problem of automatic face recognition is to visually identify a person in an input image. This task is performed by matching the input face against the faces of known people in a database of faces. Most existing ...
  • Ucko, Aaron Mark (2001-05-01)
    I have added support for predicate dispatching, a powerful generalization of other dispatching mechanisms, to the Common Lisp Object System (CLOS). To demonstrate its utility, I used predicate dispatching to enhance Weyl, ...
  • Ciccarelli, Eugene C., IV (1984-08-01)
    A prototype presentation system base is described. It offers mechanisms, tools, and ready-made parts for building user interfaces. A general user interface model underlies the base, organized around the concept of a ...
  • Berwick, Robert C. (1987-06-01)
    During the past few years, there has been much discussion of a shift from rule-based systems to principle-based systems for natural language processing. This paper outlines the major computational advantages of ...
  • Sobalvarro, Patrick G. (1992-04-01)
    We present methods of calculating the value of two performance parameters for multipath, multistage interconnection networks: the normalized throughput and the probability of successful message transmission. We develop ...
  • Marroquin, Jose Luis (1985-09-01)
    In this thesis we study the general problem of reconstructing a function, defined on a finite lattice from a set of incomplete, noisy and/or ambiguous observations. The goal of this work is to demonstrate the generality ...
  • Winograd, Terry (1971-01-01)
    This paper describes a system for the computer understanding of English. The system answers questions, executes commands, and accepts information in normal English dialog. It uses semantic information and context to ...
  • Salisbury, J. Kenneth; Srinivasan, Mandayam A. (1996-12-01)
    These proceedings summarize the results of the First PHANToM User's Group Workshop held September 27-30, 1996 MIT. The goal of the workshop was to bring together a group of active users of the PHANToM Haptic Interface ...
  • Salisbury, J. Kenneth; Srinivasan, Mandayam A. (1999-11-04)
    This Report contains the proceedings of the Fourth Phantom Users Group Workshop contains 17 papers presented October 9-12, 1999 at MIT Endicott House in Dedham Massachusetts. The workshop included sessions on, Tools ...
  • Salisbury, J. Kenneth; Srinivasan, Mandayam A. (1997-12-01)
    On October 19-22, 1997 the Second PHANToM Users Group Workshop was held at the MIT Endicott House in Dedham, Massachusetts. Designed as a forum for sharing results and insights, the workshop was attended by more than 60 ...
  • Hall, Robert Joseph (1991-02-01)
    Introducing function sharing into designs allows eliminating costly structure by adapting existing structure to perform its function. This can eliminate many inefficiencies of reusing general componentssin specific ...
  • Nagpal, Radhika (2001-06-01)
    In this thesis I present a language for instructing a sheet of identically-programmed, flexible, autonomous agents (``cells'') to assemble themselves into a predetermined global shape, using local interactions. The ...
  • Winston, Patrick H. (1973-05-01)
    The Vision Flashes are informal working papers intended primarily to stimulate internal interaction among participants in the A.I. Laboratory's Vision and Robotics group. Many of them report highly tentative conclusions ...
  • Hall, Miguel (1996-06-01)
    The MIT Prototype Educational Assessment System provides subjects and courses at MIT with the ability to perform online assessment. The system includes polices to handle harassment and electronic "flaming" while ...
