Multiple Robot Workcell for Circuit Testing

In the electronics packaging industry, one frequently needs to do a series of two-point tests for verifying open or short-ciruits. These two points can be located anywhere on the circuit card. This becomes a classic application for using two robots. The project addresses the issues of tool design, collision avoidance, motion planning, and concurrent robot control in an industrial implementation.
