Auto-ID Based Control Demonstration Phase 1: Pick and Place Packing with Conventional Control

Steve Hodges, Alan Thorne, Andy Garcia, Jin-Lung Chirn, Mark Harrison, and Duncan McFarlane

Abstract

A demonstration environment is being developed at the Auto-ID Centre Laboratory in Cambridge in order to show the benefits of applying Auto-ID information in the context of automated control systems. This document provides a technical overview of the developments required to produce the first of 3 demonstration phases planned for this environment. In this first phase, Auto-ID based information is integrated with a conventional control system to regulate a simple retail product pick and place packing environment. The demonstration in this first phase will show the ability of Auto-ID based systems to provide for orderly, accurately controlled operations in a changing and potentially disorderly environment.
