This paper shows a method to handle a target object by plural manipulators. Where, the manipulators works independently, but the target object can be driven into the specified position. The information fed to each manipulator is same, thus communication can be done by broadcasting. Such simple information structure is excellent from a viewpoint of system robustness.
