TMZlin EV3 2015 (Simulation of logistic distribution processes through intelligent robotic components)
Tomas Bata – Factulty of Applied Informatics – Together with three other Belgian colleagues, we did our internship in Zlín, Czech Republic. There we received an assignment to create a “Simulation of logistic distribution processes through intelligent robotic components”. Meaning that we would need to analyse and build a simulation where in we could test the intelligence of robotic components in a logistic distribution process.
Since this was a three month bachelor project, there were many tasks to be completed.
One of them was creating a responsive “product order” website and an “administration website”. This website contains functionalities to order products and also contains enough possibilities for administrators and operators to find out what is wrong with the hardware.
The following features were integrated:
- Product order
- Robotic hardware logging
- Order following
- User and content management and registration
- E-mail notifications
My other colleagues were responsible for the redundant hardware and High Availability of the web and processing services. And one colleague was our main Python developer, creating the communication scripts between our SQL Database and the Lego Mindstorm EV3 Robots
