The application of two or more robots employed in a co-operating mode can increase the level of flexibility and productivity in an automated manufacturing environment. The co-ordination control strategies developed were applied to two IBM 7540 SCARA robots. Several control schemes were devised to achieve concurrent robot co-ordination and trajectory tracking. A digital computer program operable on an IBM PS/2 System 80 provided multiple concurrent programming of the two robots. Interactive control strategy and master-slave control strategy were designed, implemented, optimized, and tested. The results showed excellent trajectory adherence and repeatability for both control schemes
