We present a decentralized approach used to coordinate several flexible automated guided vehicles (AGVs) operating in flexible manufacturing systems (FMSs). The decentralized coordination is based on a control policy for planning the collision-free motion, which takes into account kinematics and safety constrains. Besides this, in order to avoid deadlocks in critical zones, such as doors and corridors, a set of hazardous zones is defined, where mutual exclusion should be ensured. In order to… CONTINUE READING
