Task Scheduler

Background information

In our current delta robot lines, delta robots must cooperate to fill cartons with products. The contents of a carton can be single flavor, but they can also consist of a mix of different flavors in a more or less predefined pattern. The delta robots in such a line are configured to operate with the cartons traveling in the opposing direction in relation to the products to be picked (counter flow) or in the same direction (co-flow). Current algorithms are either slow (causing buffer time/distance between detection and the first robot), or produce non optimal results (causing the need for one or more extra robot to act as gatekeepers).

 Assignment

Design and develop an algorithm to optimize the production efficiency (throughput in products per minute) for one or more configurations without the need for extra buffer space between detection and the first robot.
