This paper addresses an object manipulation planning algorithm for dextrous robot systems consisting a multifingered hand and a robotic manipulator. A method has been developed for object reconfiguration design. The result is a new algorithm using artificial intelligence based on simulated annealing and A* search. The upper level of the manipulation system, the global planner generates the motion of the object. The lower level, the local planner deals with the motion of the agents relative to the object and the design of the contact forces. The local planner is based on simulated annealing, thus the the local minima can be avoided in the energy function of the motion with high probability. Application of the algorithm has been discussed for three robot arms.
