This paper presents a new strategy for task space control in the cooperative manipulation framework. We extend the cooperative dual task-space (CDTS) - which uses dual quaternions to represent the bimanual manipulation-to explicitly regard self-motion dynamics that arise from redundant kinematics. In this sense, we propose a flexible task execution criterion that enriches the Jacobian null space with additional degrees of freedom by relaxing control requirements upon specific geometric task objectives. The criterion is satisfied with a hysteresis-based switching strategy that ensures stability and convergence upon traditional and relaxed constraints. Simulation results highlight the importance and effectiveness of the proposed technique.
