Abstract:

An agile, modular robotic system for the automated shipboard build-up of customized pallet loads is proposed. The system, dubbed ASAP (At Sea Automated Palletizer), will employ robotics, fuzzy logic, machine vision, load planning software, and a unique cable-based 6 degree of freedom (DOF) Stewart platform as the core mechanism. The concept will allow ASAP to be installed in existing package consolidation areas on ship with very little modification to the existing area.
