The STAR project brings new capabilities for dynamic and adaptive Automatic Mobile Robots Fleet management. This will allow the use of such kind of robots in changing environment, without the need of a time consuming configuration.
Modern factories rely more and more on mobile robots to perform logistic tasks. They are efficient means to move goods from one place to another within the factory. However, they currently require a specific configuration to be used safely within an environment with human workers. Before installing a Robot Fleet, a digital map of the environment needs to be created. Possible paths for the robots are designed once for all. This kind of solution is adapted when the factory layout and working processes are fixed.
STAR is developing new technologies relying on Artificial Intelligence and simulation to bring the adaptive capabilities needed to use Robot Fleet in wider types of factory environments.
