- Processor Requirements for Reliable Automated Manufacturing Robot Networks
- Published at:Proceedings of the 23rd International Symposium on Mini and Micro-Computers and their – Applications, San Antonio, Texas, Dec. 13, 1983, pp. 73-77, Coauthors R.W. Newcomb, C.A. Niznik and R. Paparraraddy.
A review is first made of the basic graphs of interest to automated manufacturing using networks of communicating robots. These graphs are then evaluated in , terms of relative processor, and processor related hardware, needs for each type of basic robot network to achieve a specified reliability from which relative costs and cost effectiveness results are obtained.
