 Input: a radius r of two robots and a metric graph G with fixed lengths of edges.
 Output: connected components of the configuration space of two robots in G.
 Running time: O(n^{4}) for the number n of vertices in the given graph G.
 Abstract. A connected metric graph G with n vertices and without loops and multiple edges can be represented as an nbyn matrix whose entries are length of edges of G. A robot in the metric graph G is a metric ball with a centre x in G and a radius r>0. The configuration space OC(G,r) of two robots in G is the set of all centers (x,y) such that the centres x,y are at least 2r away from each other. We introduce the configuration skeleton CS(G,r) that captures all connectivity information of the space OC(G,r). As a consequence we get a polynomial time algorithm to find all connected components of OC(G,r) that are maximal subsets of all positions (x,y) connectable by collisionfree motions.
