[[abstract]]In this project, the control algorithm and architecture of distributed systems of group patrol robots based on Petri nets (PNs) theory is proposed. We will design the architecture for group patrol robot’s system using Petri nets theory and control algorithms for a single robot of the group patrol robots using fuzzy Petri nets. The final goal of this project is to implement a group of patrol robots controlled by Petri nets. In this research, network control means the effective and proper communication between the robots of the group patrol robots through wireless networks. This project is a three-year program. In first year, we will focus on constructing PNs model of a single robot and using PNs model to describe the dynamics of robots. We will also use fuzzy Petri nets to control single robot. The main job of second year is to design the distributed system’s executing policy and construct the communication method by using PNs. In third year, the control algorithm of distributed systems of group patrol robots will be realized by using an embedded system.
