Abstract

Since control methods of a transport system between processing machines are specialized for each layout of the system, it is difficult to design prompt schedules and control logic for recent complicated systems, especially in case of machine troubles or restructuring of system to modify the layout. In this paper, we propose a multi-agent transport control system which utilizes pheromone information. Each element of the system acts as an agent and estimates the appropriate path and time to drive out the products with information obtained by communication with other elements and pheromone information deposited on the track of products.
