Hi,

you could check for contacts between the cups and the object, when contact is detected you can dynamically create a fixed joint between the two links to simulate the vacuum, thus the object will follow the movement of the vacuum cup.

If the idea suits you, check out the gazebo/physics/Gripper.cc example where fix joints are created. For detecting the contact use a contact sensor, here is a tutorial.

Cheers, Andrei
