The concept of Petri net controllers is extended to include automatic error recovery and adaptive design. In the Petri net controller considered, a place that represents an operation or a state of a machine is attached to two functions and a constant so that it can represent a system working with both normal states and abnormal states. In addition, it is possible to detect an error with the controller using watchdog timers. Four basic Petri net augmentation methods for error recovery are investigated: input conditioning, alternate path, feedback error recovery, and forward error recovery. The authors demonstrate that when these methods are used to augment the Petri net controller, some important properties of the controller are guaranteed to be preserved. These properties include boundedness or safety, liveness, reversibility and the essentially decision-free property. An example of augmentations for error recovery for a piston insertion cell with two robots is given
