A control method that organizes multiple autonomous units to
accomplish a certain task as a group.
In group control, multiple units, each of which has relatively
simple function and can perform limited work on its own, can perform intelligent operation by
organizing them into a group. Group control is important especially in control of multiple
micromachines. Examples of group control systems on an experimental basis are the cell structure
robot system that consists of multiple simple-function autonomous robots called as cells and can be
