Abstract

Cognition is of great interest in several scientific disciplines. The issue is to transfer human cognitive capabilities to technical systems and so generate artificial cognition. But while robots are learning to communicate or behave socially only a few examples for applications in production engineering and especially in assembly planning exist. In this field cognitive systems can achieve a technological advance by means of self-optimization and the associated autonomous adaption of the system’s behavior to external goal states. In this paper cognitive technical systems and their software architectures in general are discussed as well as several assembly planning systems. A precise autonomous assembly planning system and its implementation of cognitive capabilities is presented in detail.
