This paper presents a system for cooperatively manipulating large objects with a human and a robot. This physical interaction system is designed to handle, transport or rotate objects in cooperation with a human. Unique points are the bi-manual physical cooperation, the sequential characteristic of the cooperation including re-grasping, and a novel architecture combining force interaction queues, interactive search-based planning, and online trajectory and motion generation. The concepts are evaluated on a bi-manual mobile robot with 32 degrees of freedom.
