A distributed ladder transportation algorithm for two robots in a corridor
Proceedings 2001 ICRA. IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (Cat. No.01CH37164)
We consider the problem of transporting a long object, such as a ladder, through a 90 degree corner in a corridor using two omni-directional robots that do not necessarily have i d e n tical characteristics. A distributed algorithm is presented in which each robot computes its own motion based on the current and goal positions of the ladder, the locations of the walls, and the motion of the other robot observed indirectly through the link between the robot and the ladder.
