In the automotive industry, researchers leverage Artelys Knitro to tackle the complexity of assembly lines and robot trajectories. The outcomes are remarkable, resulting in a 14% reduction in energy consumption and a substantial 50% improvement in robot movements
Automotive manufacturing industry is one of the largest users of industrial robotic technology. Robots are employed for manufacturing the car-body panels in complex assembly lines, such as cyclic multi-robot systems.
The ability of robots to cooperate is therefore essential to avoid collisions, mostly when they operate in close proximity. It is also critical for the productivity, since the determination of reliable and smooth robots’ trajectories minimizing the system’s energy consumption and cycle-time results in a higher productivity level.
Artelys Knitro is employed for solving such complex optimization problem allowing substantial improvements up to 50% smoother trajectories and 14% reduction in energy consumption.
