Abstract

We propose a decentralized control algorithm for transporting a single object by two nonholonomic mobile robots driven by two wheels. We extend the leader-follower type control algorithm, proposed by Kosuge and Oosumi (1996) for holonomic robots, to mobile robots by introducing the dual caster action. The extended control algorithm is applied to two experimental tracked mobile robots, and the experimental results illustrate the validity of the control algorithm.
