Introduction to Logistics and automation library

Initiative Description

This platform is meant to enable the development of value-added services for the logistics sector in small-scale Industry 4.0 contexts such as those of manufacturing SMEs. In fact, it provides an easily deployable suite of applications for the rapid development of complete logistics solutions, including components for task scheduling, path planning, automatic factory layout generation and navigation.

Training Objectives

-It reduces set-up times for implementing new logistics tasks as well as for coping with changes in the layout of the manufacturing floor. -It allows the integration of hardware and software products from different vendors and providers to obtain full interoperability among the different systems. -It enables product (e.g. AGVs, mobile robots) and components (e.g. track-and-trace systems) development that are cost‐effective and interoperable with other suppliers’ products.

Training Contents

The library provides a ready integration to a state of the art 3D factory simulator (with mobile robots, AGVs, forklifts, workers and sensors) which allows for complete development and testing of the logistics solutions virtually before actual implementation. The 3D simulator provides support for the estimation of investment and guides the orchestration of the deployment tasks.
