This cross-disciplinary project is part of a global approach to optimising intra-logistical processes and, in particular, the management of automated distribution and order preparation warehouses. More specifically, the work focuses on improving the performance of shuttle systems for storage and picking, by exploiting and making use of logistical and mechatronic data. This project is at the interface between machine learning and operations research.
