The optimization of existing manufacturing systems is a challenging and highly complex task, requiring highquality information about the current system. Currently, acquiring such information involves tedious and to a large extend manual work. In this paper we present an ongoing joint project effort bringing together cognitive robotics and planning and(More)
The increase of complexity and dynamics leads to new challenges in transport logistics networks. Current routing algorithms of central control are pushed to their limits in handling these new challenges. This leads to the development of an autonomously controlled routing protocol, the Distributed Logistics Routing Protocol (DLRP), which allows a better(More)
In the field of transport logistics, the planning of routes is usually executed centrally. However, current trends in transport logistics exhibit higher degrees of dynamics and complexity. Central algorithms are not adequate in handling these new challenges. Therefore, new solutions are required. Within this context, the Distributed Logistics Routing(More)
The German Collaborative Research Centre 637 ‘Autonomous Cooperating Logistic Processes’ tries to make a paradigm shift from central planning to autonomous control in the field of logistics. Among other things, autonomous routing algorithms based on internet routing protocols are developed. The Distributed Logistics Routing Protocol (DLRP) was originally(More)
Autonomous control of logistic objects such as vehicles and goods in transport processes means that such objects act independently to find their best way through a logistic network. In order to make reasonable decisions, they have to interact with other objects, e.g. to determine the availability of transport demand or free transport capacity along a(More)
Due to the increasing complexity and dynamics of actual transport logistics networks, traditional algorithms of centralized routing are pushed to their limits. The application of autonomous algorithms leads to a better handling of these increasing requirements. Within this context, the Distributed Logistics Routing Protocol (DLRP) was developed, which(More)
The goal of this paper is to provide a fundamental methodical approach for identifying actors in Complex Adaptive Logistics Systems to deduce knowledge that can be implemented into the decision structures of intelligent logistics objects. This serves as a basis for further simulation-based studies regarding the efficiency of the usage of autonomous(More)
