Abstract : This document presents Volume VI of the report of research into the automation of shirt collar manufacturing using robotic methods. Presented is the hierarchical, semi-autonomous control scheme employed to achieve coordinated operation of the various robots and machines employed in the collar turning and pressing workstation. This control scheme was tested and demonstrated through operation of the machine devices discussed in related volumes. Real- world validation of the use of hierarchical and intelligent control in the context of the apparel industry has been demonstrated.
