### A Mechatronics project on Manufacturing Automation ppt

1. 1. MANUFACTURING AUTOMATION MAE 576 [MECHATRONICS] Project GROUP E Chembrammel Elavunkal Srinivasan Vishwajeet University at Buffalo, Mechatronics, Spring 2010
2. 2. Objective <ul><li>Coordination of multiple controllers and the mutual communication between the controllers </li></ul><ul><li>Multi – Robot coordination </li></ul><ul><li>Mobile robot control </li></ul><ul><li>Integrate the above mentioned objectives to achieve the automation of a shop floor. </li></ul>
3. 3. Schematic Diagram of Factory Automation
4. 4. Flowchart B A
5. 5. B A
6. 6. Hierarchy of Robot Task Planning <ul><li>The path of the AGV is broken down to sections of left and right turns </li></ul><ul><li>These turns are coded in binary as 0 and 1 respectively </li></ul><ul><li>Thus a path is represented by number </li></ul>For example, for the pair of Home-R4, the binary number formed by the turns is 11011. Total number of bits in the number = 5. The decimal equivalent of the number is 27. So the code is 27 * 10 + 5 = 275.
