RGEMS (Research Group in Evolvable Manumation Systems) is a research group within the Department of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering at the CUT, Free State.

Research Unit for Evolvable and Manumation Systems (RGEMS) involve the effective integration of:

• Sensing, recording and control of the operational parameters of manufacturing and material handling apparatus.

• Intelligent maintenance, including performance degrading prediction and scheduling.

• Machine vision-based quality assurance and measuring systems.

• Radio frequency identification technologies for inventory control.

• Optimization of the function of vision-guided automatic guided vehicles (AGV’s) in a dynamically changing industrial environment.

• Deployment of intelligent (autonomous) software agents in the software subsystems of automated material-handling systems.
