Studies on a pair of anthropomorphous manipulators "MELARM" were conducted mainly to achieve manipulation of objects, without human intervention, by the effective use of two mechanical arms.In a multi-degree of freedom manipulator there are two significant problems -one being how to coordinate all the actuators to produce movement in a space of a lower dimension, and the other being how to make two arms cooperate to do effective work. A minimum position of the MELARM and a cooperational control procedure using force sensors is proposed for determining the movements of a pair of manipulators without human intervention when as an example a box is carried by them.
