This paper deals with a motion planning of mobile robots during transferring a large object cooperatively by a group of multiple mobile robots (a robot group). This problem has the following characteristics: 1) a real time planning is essential because mobile robots move in an open and dynamic area in comparison to articulated robots; 2) both the object and the robot group need to avoid collision against obstacles; and 3) the object needs to be grasped stably by the robot group. The authors propose the following approach to solve this complicated problem: 1) regrasping strategy of the object is introduced in order avoid obstacles and to transfer the object stably; and 2) the motion planning is divided into two steps: the object and that of the robot group. The former step is accomplished by extending the virtual impedance method, which was proposed by authors. The latter step is realized by using nonlinear programming method, that optimizes a penalty index indicating the performance for obstacle avoidance and for stable grasping. Effectiveness of the proposed method is verified by a simulation of transferring a large circle-shaped object with three robots
