This paper formulates a new scalable algorithm for motion planning and control of multiple point-mass robots. These autonomous robots are designated to move safely to their goals in a priori known workspace cluttered with fixed and moving obstacles of arbitrary positions and sizes. The control laws proposed for obstacle and collision avoidance and target convergence ensure that the equilibrium point of the given system is asymptotically stable. Computer simulations with the proposed technique and applications to a team of two planar (RP) manipulators working together in a common workspace are presented. Also, the robustness of the system in the presence of noise is verified through simulations.
