This paper deals with modeling and implementation problems in multiple robot control systems, especially in the field of flexible manufacturing systems. Based on conceptual condition-event models of robotic activities, extended Petri nets are adopted as a tool for expressing independent and cooperative robotic tasks by industrial intelligent robots. Net models representing inter-robot cooperation with synchronized interaction are presented, and the design of a net based real-time distributed control system which coordinates the parallel activities of the robot controllers through the transmission of commands and the reception of status, is described.
