Project to develop interconnected modules for environment perception for cooperative interacting recourses for the intelligent logistic field
Currently, the logistics situated in a fast changing under the pressure of the global market, the personalized demand as well as the arise of new technologies of information and communication. An important part plays the gaining networking and the decentralised communication of objects and systems. The goals is to enable more flexible and more efficient logistical process chains.
Thorsis Technologies and the Fraunhofer-Institut (IFF) work on this problem together and start the FuE-project called “EmuLog”. As part of this project, both companies develop and evaluate modules for environment perception to determine the conditions of recourses and for the following broadcasting. The solution is a coordination of logistic tasks among each other.
Lower risks of efficiency loss of the complete process by EmuLog
Systems of logistic are complex interconnections of human and not-human actors. In these human-technique-systems, the efficiency of the complete process follows from the connection between human actions and mechanical operations of steering.
Through the interface of systems, several tasks proceed simultaneous: to contribute the human skills (competencies of perception, action and decision) efficient as well as to graspable and to rateable their consequences for recourses. Otherwise, the result would be efficiency loss in the working processes. An additional factor is the complexity of the process: the logistical tasks compete among each other.
The problem-solving approach of the project: modules for environment perception
Project EmuLog provides the solution to gain efficiency of the logistical processes through cooperative operations! The development of modules for environment perception has priority.
The modules could perceive sections of their environment and transfer to other connected participants. Additionally, they could receive information of other modules and could involve the information in the rating of their local perception.
The aim is to enable well-matched trajectories of movement and conditions of all logistical recourses. By doing this, a higher density, pace, workload and security of the now cooperative interacting recourses would be reachable.
