2015 2015 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA)  
We describe and demonstrate these techniques in the context of a testbed we implemented for assembling a wing ladder.  ...  Numerous small mobile robots can replace these large structures and, therefore, replicate the efficiency of the assembly line with far more flexibility.  ...  To date, we have focused on two tasks: coordination of two robots to insert ribs into a partially-assembled wing ladder and sensorbased coordinated motion of two robots to carry a flexible skin panel.  ...

Transportation of long objects in unknown cluttered environments by a team of robots: A dynamical systems approach

Toni Machado, Tiago Malheiro, Sergio Monteiro, Estela Bicho, Wolfram Erlhagen
2013 2013 IEEE International Symposium on Industrial Electronics  
We present a distributed architecture for teams of two autonomous mobile robots that act in coordination in a joint transportation task of long objects.  ...  The overt behavior is smooth and stable, because it is generated as a time sequence of attractor states, for the control variables, which contributes to the overall asymptotically stability of the system  ...  In [1] two robots transport a long ladder in a corridor with a 90 • corner (but only in simulation).  ...
