Industrial Doctorate: PhD Thesis proposal


Description
The deployment of mobile robotic systems to carry out in-house transportation tasks is a key element to improve efficiency in the logistics of Industry 5.0-inspired smart factories. However, the standard requirements of logistics schemes such as flexibility, reconfigurability, reusability, scalability or energy-efficiency, pose a number of challenging open control problems to be addressed.
The thesis will be focused on the development of distributed control strategies for the traffic management of AGV-based in-house transportation systems encompassing:
- the task scheduling and route planning of the fleet in an integrated fashion and with a high level of decentralization,
- the route execution of the individual AGVs during operation in potentially mixed scenarios with improved collision avoidance and deadlock properties.
