The paper describes network system to realize the motion like muscle. First, the motion of the network system is analyzed by the model system which consists of many electromagnets. Secondly a control strategy of the network motion system constructed by micro actuator is shown. In the proposed network motion system, the total system consists of many force transmission lines and the superposition of the force signal propagated by each line acts on the end actuator. In this sense, the proposed motion control method is called Delay Superposition Method (DSM). Several experimental and numerical results are also shown to confirm the validity of the proposed method.
