A design for an artificial mark attached to small objects is presented in this paper. Three conditions are required for the design of the marks:(1) short calculation time, (2) easy attachment, and (3) individual calculation for each item. The marks are obtained by using three different extraction methods. The experiments determine the best mark. The mark using the method that extract colors and calculated them gravity has good results. We analyze the errors of the mark that has best experiment. The appropriateness of the experimental results is then confirmed. We have the experiment that the manipulator handles the objects with the best marks. The experiment is successful. Therefore, the usability of the mark is verified.
