Optimal Retrieval in Puzzle-Based Storage with Heuristic Search and Tabulation


Published:   2021  By:   Ariel Rosenfeld

In this work, we formulate a highly generic optimal retrieval problem, consisting of any number of loads to be retrieved, and an arbitrary number of I/O points and empty locations (escorts) on a two-dimensional lattice graph.  We theoretically analyze the characteristics of the problem and propose a set of graph search algorithms to tackle the inherent complexities thereof.
