IEEE CASE 2016 Workshop on Multi-Robot Systems in Automation: Topics in Planning and Control

Workshop Overview

One of big commercial successes of robotics has been optimization and automation of materials handling, warehousing, and fulfillment at scale. Underlying these successes are solutions to important problems of several types, including mechanical design robots, sensing technologies, strategies for power management and recharging. The purpose of this workshop is to explore questions related primarily to control and planning of such systems, and also systems which ultimately could have an impact on automation applications in the long-run.
