xOpt is optimal plan automatic generation software that generates route and action plans for multiple material handling equipment such as AGVs.
It can be incorporated into other systems such as the “Transit Optimal Platform” (existing controller systems, etc.).
Computed outputs of xOpt
Task assignment for each mobile
Path of each mobile
Action (speed/behavior) of each mobile
Overall optimization of multiple agents (target material handling equipments) and multiple tasks is possible
The route generation algorithm that has been popular for a long time is an optimization that uses only one agent and does not consider the time series, but xOpt performs the shortest path / action plan for multiple units, and performs optimization assist considering the time / other agents speed.
*Utilization rate of material handling equipment
It is also possible to perform energy management by incorporating the concepts of fuel efficiency and power consumption
Can express speed attenuation when loading parts
Target vehicle speed can be determined according to the distance between vehicles
Standby operation is also set in special situations such as loading and unloading
If you get too close to another vehicle, The algorithm calculates the deceleration / stop.
*More optimized task assignment
Instead of automatically allocating tasks based on their positional relationship, actually assign tasks and adopt the most optimal allocation order
Elevators and shutters functions can be added as options
Since it is provided as a module, it can be incorporated into other systems (existing controller systems, etc.)
