A control method that runs multiple equipment collaboratively to
perform tasks effectively.
The goal of cooperative control can be classified into control for
the avoidance of competition, and control for the execution of work. For example, research into
cooperative control for the avoidance of competition includes path-planning algorithms and
optimization of the behavior of groups of microrobots. Research into cooperative control for task
execution includes grasping objects by multiple micro-manipulators and performing actions using
