Abstract

Recently much interest is directed to studying the system architecture of the coordination and cooperation of multiple robotic systems or multiple agent systems, which consist of many units of robots (Fukuda & Nakagawa 1987; Fukuda et al. 1988). Some examples can be seen in many realistic environments. For examples, multiple manipulators or multiple fingers work together for handling some objects under a given task or many multiple mobile robots work to carry some objects without collisions.
