A SYSTEM-ARCHITECTURE FOR ROBOTIC MOVEMENTS OF GOODS - Approaches Towards a Cognitive Material Flow System

Dennis Ommen, Carsten Beth, Jens Kamenik, Axel Hahn

Abstract

Flexibility, throughput, maintainability, scalability, reliability and low cost: That are the main optimization criteria of material flow systems (MFS). The most of this criteria are diametrical and so hardly to improve considerably with today’s existing transportation devices and their static control structures. Hence a new approach of a transportation systems with cooperating robotic units and a novel cognitive environment will be presented. This approach will combine different research areas like robotics and wireless sensor networks to achieve a higher degree of flexibility.
