In this paper, we present the control of a robotic system for automation in manufacturing logistics based on the Open Platform for Innovations in Logistics (OPIL). OPIL is developed in the scope of the European H2020 project Smart logistics for manufacturing SMEs (L4MS), which aims to contend with the ubiquitous challenges in logistics for flexible manufacturing small and medium enterprises (SMEs). We developed the sensing and perception software module as part of OPIL, and a custom navigation module integrated with OPIL. We also developed a novel omnidirectional automated guided vehicle (AGV) suited for transporting the Euro-pallets with the payload of up to 400 kg. We use MURAPLAST d.o.o., the leading producer of Polyethylene (PE) blown film in Croatia, as a case study which demonstrates the effectiveness of the developed system in manufacturing logistics.
