The level of autonomy is the most important feature by which the modern robotic systems development is directed. Furthermore, if the robots are supposed to work together in order to solve a complex task, their workspaces are shared. In this case, the robots present dynamic obstacle to each other. This paper presents a solution of the problem of motion(More)
Rapid present development of unmanned aerial vehicles is rather unstructured. Starting from general systems theory we formulate classification of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) that properly groups diverse produced unmanned aerial vehicles, along with their currently unproduced, yet possible types. First we structure the context of applications of UAVs(More)
This paper deals with issues of robustness and adaptivity in a real-world automated assembly system. The focus of research is set on robustness achieving for constantly changing environmental conditions, especially light conditions and changing orientation, position and distribution of the parts for assembly. An increase in the level of(More)
A high level of autonomy is a prerequisite for achieving robotic presence in a broad spectrum of work environments. If there is more than one robot in a given environment and the workspaces of robots are shared, then the robots present a dynamic obstacle to each other, which is a potentially dangerous situation. This paper deals with(More)
Contemporary industrial environments are usually constrained or limited in order to fit a fast, cheap and non-error prone production. Human-like system capabilities are not generally desirable there. But, recent trends in industrial robotics demand robust, flexible and efficient robots with a certain level of autonomy. Therefore, new and different(More)
Swarm optimization, swarm intelligence and swarm robotics are the fields considering a group of relatively simple individuals able cooperate to perform complex tasks, in decentralized manner. The inspiration is found in the first line within animal societies, such as birds, ants and bees. Social insects exhibit successful behavior in performing complex(More)
In this paper a new Product Model (PM) for production is presented. An agent able to negotiate the operations that the product must undergo on the stations in manufacturing is attached to it. That agent has all the necessary information concerning its manufacturing range, the environment of production, the objectives, and the constraints and rules of(More)
