Abstract

This paper presents our initial thoughts on the design of an architecture for highly flexible, modular, and distributed precision assembly systems. Through the use of a unified design, simulation, programming, and monitoring environment coupled with self-representing cooperative agents, this architecture will significantly simplify the process of factory design and deployment. Our demonstration of this architecture takes the form of a “table top” sized assembly system targeted at the partial assembly of high-density magnetic storage devices.
