Intelligent Service Robot (ISR) will grow to provide useful services for human as a need to support household chores and human function spreads and our community goes into an aging society. Self- reconfiguration of ISR is an important factor to change itself without stopping while supporting environment and technology change. Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Web 2.0 help us reduce integration expenses and increase reuse benefits. In this paper, we present a utilization of semantic Web 2.0 for self-reconfiguration of SOA based agent applications in ISR. The software architecture of ISR consists of service agents which are modules to provide information and knowledge. When ISR meets an irresolvable situation it searches and downloads a necessary service agent from the external service repository, executes the agent, and resolves the situation. The prototype implemented to show the situation has confirmed the validity of our study. Thus this study is expected to contribute to adding more intelligence to robots.
