This paper focuses on the collaborative swarm robot tasks. It is assumed that a robot cannot communicate with each other but a robot can localize itself accurately. In this paper, the objective of proposed algorithm is perfectly completing the given missions which require collaborative multi-robot tasks and is improving productivity. In addition, the proposed algorithm is applied to the stick-pulling problem which was first studied by A. Martinoli and F. Mondada. Last but not least, the probabilistic completeness is verified by simulation results handling homogeneous multi-robot.
