A manipulation is generally thought of as a complex set of actions, which are used to perform a transportation of an object in the space with a movement similarly to that of a human arm when its hand holds an object. Therefore, a manipulation can be considered as related to movements of objects with a specific purpose. For example both the transportation of components for assembly and movements for painting can be considered as manipulations, although the first operations are preliminary actions and the latter perform completely a task.
