Cooperating manipulators in dual-arm robots usually result in a mechanically overconstrained system having more actuator resources than freedom of motion, or an excess of actuator inputs. Decision-making criteria are necessary to make effective use of dual-arm robotic system resources, as well as to enhance performance for either telerobotic or autonomous dual-arm robots. The decision-making criteria are based on parameters inherent to the two cooperating manipulators, and parameters intrinsic to cooperative modes of operation in dual- arm robots. There are many criteria that need to be evaluated and balanced in a complete decision-making system for dual-arm robots. A set of decision-making criteria for dual-arm robots is proposed from which a subset is examined in detail. A graphical simulation of a 17 degree-of-freedom robot performing cooperative dual-arm robotic operations is used to interactively study and evaluate multiple decision-making criteria for dual-arm robots.
