Incremental Task-level Reasoning in a Competitive Factory Automation Scenario


Facing the fourth industrial revolution, autonomous mobile robots are expected to play an important role in the production processes of the future. The new Logistics League Sponsored by Festo (LLSF) under the RoboCup umbrella focuses on this aspect of robotics to provide a benchmark testbed on a common robot platform. We describe certain aspects of the integrated robot system of our Carologistics RoboCup team, in particular our reasoning approach to the supply chain problem of the LLSF. We approach the problem by deploying the CLIPS rules engine for product planning and dealing with the incomplete knowledge that exists in the domain and show that it is suitable for computationally limited platforms.
