The project Flexible Intralogistics for Future Factories (FlexIFF) conducts research into human robot collaboration for intralogistics teams in the electronics manufacturing industry. These teams are creating a cyber-physical system out of human workers, mobile manipulators, manufacturing machinery, and manufacturing information systems. AR and VR devices are used by workers to interact with the robots and machinery. The right information at the right time is key to make this collaboration successful. Hence, scheduling of tasks for mobile manipulators and human worker must be undertaken closely linked with enterprise information systems giving all actors on the shop floor a common view of the current manufacturing status. FlexIFF should provide useful, well tested, and sophisticated solutions for cyber-physicals systems in intralogistics where humans and robots can bring in their strengths and help each other.
