Abstract

To optimize the transportation processes inside transfer stations the degree of automation has to be increased without the loose of flexibility. Therefore this paper proposes a detailed architecture for an intelligent material flow system based on the technologies of Multi-Agent-Systems (MAS) and wireless sensor networks. Furthermore, a novel framework is proposed that eases the integration process between the MAS and the physical level of heterogeneous conveyors.
