Development of fleet management platforms for AGVs

One of the key technologies in the new Industry 4.0 paradigm is the use of autonomous robots. Its massive deployment will increase the flexibility and modularity of production processes, facilitating the introduction of these design principles in the factories of the future.

These autonomous robots, especially in the case of AGVs, need to be coordinated by a management platform that guarantees interoperability between the different machines and efficient interrelation with the rest of the subsystems of the industrial plant. So far, there is no agnostic management platform that allows the management of a heterogeneous AGV fleet. The construction of this work platform is the central objective of this R & D project.
