Eugene Levner: Scheduling Swarms of Robots and Drones: How Fuzzy Logic Solves a Scheduling Problem
Consider a cyclic process in which a set of several human operators or robots perform m given sequential operations whereas a number of flying unmanned vehicles-drones are used to transfer information gathered by the operators and/or to transfer a load to fixed points. Durations of data collecting and transfer operations are known fuzzy numbers. The aim is to find the schedule for the swarms of drones so that to maximize the system productivity, or to minimize the cycle length, and to avoid collisions of the drones. The fuzzy logic allows to solve the optimization problem under uncertainty. A novel fuzzy algorithm outperforms the earlier-known crisp scheduling algorithms.
