Due to dynamically changing conditions such as shorter innovation cycles and an increased number of product variants, future material flow systems have to be characterized by increased flexibility and adaptivity. In this work a novel scalable cognitive conveyor with integrated intelligence is presented. By using standardized and interchangeable modules, each equipped with intelligence, an increased flexibility in configuring warehousing systems is achieved. Besides transportation, the conveyor can perform tasks such as sorting, buffering or sequencing goods.
