2014 (English)In: 2014 12TH IEEE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON INDUSTRIAL INFORMATICS (INDIN), 2014, 404-410 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Sustainability is currently one of the biggest challenges and drivers of manufacturing industry. With traditional automation approaches becoming evermore inadequate to support sustainable mass customized production, the research focus is moving towards agile systems that enact companies with the ability to quickly reconfigure their shop-floors by seamlessly deploying or removing modules. Such systems are envisioned as key for attaining a profitable and sustainable industrial development. In this sense, this paper attempts to characterize an innovative approach that relies on bio-inspired concepts as the main control mechanism, in order to foster sustainability by attaining the necessary shop-floor agility. Furthermore an experimental setup is presented and the results are analysed, in order to understand the influence and impact of the main properties of the approach towards the system performance.
