Traffic modeling and control for multi-AGV systems in industrial applications
Groups of AGVs have been increasingly used, in the last few years, for automating logistics operations in industrial environments. This talk will focus on methodologies for modeling, in a dynamic manner, the traffic of the AGVs moving in the plant. Such a traffic model can then be exploited for implementing advanced coordination strategies. Along these lines, the talk will discuss some recently developed methodologies that, using a hierarchical strategy, lead to optimizing the traffic flow through industrial plants.
