A generic multirobot control experimental system

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article describes a generic experimental system that implemented the activity controller theory. The controller has the ability to coordinate any number of robots (and other automated machines) and to respond to the random arrival of components, so as to efficiently assemble various mixes of products. The work also briefly presents the structure of the coordination system, and a solution frame to the dynamic collision avoidance problem. The computer‐controlled experimental system is used to simultaneously operate two robots sharing tasks and auxiliary devices in an assembly cell.
