Robocup 2017

The steady increase in worldwide transport tasks asks for improved autonomous solutions. Following the RoboCup spirit the Logistics  league’s objective is to enable scientific work in order to achieve a flexible solution of material and informational flow within industrial production using self-organising Robots.

This next evolution of Automated Guided Vehicles calls for new technologies to overcome present non feasibilities. At present, the competition envisages a kind of hardware-in-the-loop simulation method, i.e. there is a flexible simulated production hall with integrated real mobile robot systems having the task to create an efficient material flow to provide a high rate of product deliveries in due time. In 2015 small real production machines were introduced such that a real production process could be visualized.
