|Topic:||Energy Optimization of Robotic Cells|
|Description:||Current robotic cells are usually designed with the aim to maximize the production rate without taking into account the energy efficiency. Several recent research works  report that significant amount of energy can be saved by setting proper speeds of robotic movements and a suitable order of operations.
The objective of this work is to propose a simple algorithm for setting the speed of robotic movements such that the line provides a given production rate and the total energy consumption is minimized. The work will be done in Siemens Process Simulate, which is a 3D design environment used by manufacturers like Škoda or VW, offering a very precise simulation of robots. The experiments will be performed on models of real production lines.
