In this paper, we describe the access dispatching mech anism in which access requirements from clients are re garded as autonomous agents. Each agent can observe only its local environment, and sends a message to get more information. Periodically, it computes the current best place, moves to the place, and sends the message telling the change of the environment to its neighborhood. The mech anism is robust against the change of environment, enables flexible access dispatching that increases performance and suppress computation and communication costs. We have implemented printers controlling system equipped with this mechanism, and performed simulation to show the effec tiveness of the mechanism.
