The concept of the DRRS (dynamically reconfigurable robotic system) based on a cell structure is proposed for the next generation of robotic systems. The system can reorganize its configuration and its software to a given task, so that its level of flexibility and adaptability is much higher than that of the conventional robots. It consists of a lot of intelligent cells that have a fundamental mechanical function. Each cell can detach itself and recombine autonomously, depending on a task, e.g. To provide manipulators or mobile robots. The system can also be self-repairing and fault-tolerant. A decision method for cell-structured-manipulator configurations is proposed
