Title:Tolerant Planning and Negotiation in Automated Guided Vehicle Systems
Abstract:This project investigates tolerant planning and negotiation in automated guided vehicle (AGV) systems, following the work down by Kwa in this field. A new implementation of Kwa's iterative negotiation is made, which makes it possible for an AGV planning system to find alternative plans using backtracking search when the negotiation process fails. Various AGV data based are designed and implemented to make it possible to store AGV plans in such a way that the nodes for AGV plans can be stored, retrieved, and modified with high efficiency and meet the requirements for back-tracking. Various functions are defined to manipulate the data bases. A display system for AGV plans is designed and implemented, to make the AGV plans visually interpretable.
