Computational robotics laboratory (Prof. Stelian Coros)
Industrial robots are revolutionizing traditional logistics and manufacturing machinery, thanks to their flexibility in spatial movements and capabilities for multi-tasking. This shows promises for a new generation of smart factories that can swiftly adapt their layouts and functions to new industrial demands. However, most automated factories today are planned manually, leading to substantial downtime and inflexibility.
This project explores the potential of automated robot layout and coordination in a factory environment. We will develop an algorithmic framework that, given a high-level automation goal and hardware budget, generates the factory layout and collaborative plan of the deployed robots.
