Simulatie van een conflictvrij AGV-systeem
Report 2007.TEL.7192, Transport Engineering and Logistics.
Planning and routing of AGV's on container terminals is a complicated
process. The Technical University of Berlin has found an new algorithm. With
this algorithm the capacity of the AGV network can be increased. Intelligent
routing en scheduling of AGV's can prevent deadlocks and other delays of
containers arriving at the quay crane. AGV's can be routed without
counteracting each other.
In this paper the influence of a number of research variables to the
capacity is studied. These variables are the number of quay locations and the
number of stack locations, the number of quay lanes and the number of stacking
lanes and an the proportion between quay locations and stacking locations.
One of the major results says that an increasing number of quay lanes gives
an increasing capacity.
