This paper proposes a method for controlling a flexible SMA (Shape Memory Alloy) - Net robot by using a coupled oscillator system. The control method is inspired by the emergent behavior control mechanism of slime mold amoebae and using highly distributed information processing system. The control method enables basic behaviors of movement to attractive stimulus and escape from unattractive stimulus
