Robotic Systems Integration for Supply Chain Workflows: Design, Deploy, Execute

Workshop at 2022 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2022)

Sunday, October 23, 2022, The Kyoto International Conference Center, Room B-2, Japan

Register for IROS 2022 and join the Robotic Systems Integration for Supply Chain Workflows workshop to explore and discuss the advancement and challenges of intelligent robotics systems and their integration to supply chain workflows. This live, in-person workshop will include presenters from both industry and academia helping to highlight challenges in applying new automation technologies in real-world applications.

Automation technologies are impacting all stages of the supply chain, ranging from raw material sourcing and supply to end product manufacturing and distribution. Key steps toward developing such technologies are algorithm synthesis for decision making, navigation and manipulation strategies, and eventual control. Consideration of system-level deployment and validation is critical for integrating algorithms into real-world systems capable of performing tasks reliably in real time. With the growing impact of supply chain shortages, it becomes necessary to increase automation among all the stages of the chain to avoid bottlenecks. This workshop will investigate how complex algorithms emerge in the context of the supply chain and how they are modeled, simulated, and deployed on real-world systems.
