  author={W. Echelmeyer and Alice Kirchheim and E. Wellbrock},
  journal={2008 IEEE International Conference on Automation and Logistics},
Robotics-logistics can be understood as the field of activities in which applications of industrial robot-technologies are offered and demanded in order to ensure the optimization of internal material flows. According to a survey conducted by BIBA in 2007, the area of robotics-logistics has great need for modernization. Robotics-Logistics activities can be classified in several scenarios as unloading / loading of goods and palletizing / depalletizing of goods. Possible scenarios for research… CONTINUE READING
