This paper deals with the project AMADEUS Autonomous Manipulator Device for Strengthening Manufacturing in Europe, a new approach to combine an automated guided vehicle with an application-specific setup and a robotic manipulator. The whole system is controlled using a manufacturing execution system (MES) that can be integrated into an already existing MES to constantly optimize the productivity and effectivity of the production process. Therefore AMADEUS unifies well-known and industry-approved techniques to an entirely new robotic solution for intralogistics tasks like part supply, machine-tending or quality control.
