Abstract
In this paper we apply some state-of-the-art ontology
technologies for representing robots' capabilities and tasks
and for exploiting these ontological models in the activities
of a multirobot system. Our approach has been experimen-
tally validated with real (not simulated) mobile robots.
1. Introduction
Flexible multirobot systems could be built starting from
robotic platforms and having a mobile execution unit mi-
grating on the platforms "spreading a cooperation glue" [1].
This paper presents a possible solution to one of the
most important concrete problems that this visionary idea
poses: the interface between a robotic platform and an exe-
cution unit. More specifically, we provide, exploiting ontol-
ogy technologies, a description of the locomotion subsys-
