On synchronized proportional motion of multi-robot systems with stepper motors and shared controller


The synchronized action of robots is important in many applications, especially in the manufacturing processes. An algorithm to obtain a smooth synchronized movement of the multiple-robot system is presented for the case when only one processor is available to control all of the robots that incorporate stepper motors. The origin of this algorithm stems from the digital differential analyzer used in machine tool control.
