Abstract Organizations allow structuring and coordinating the activities of robots that take part in a multi-robot system (MRS). Within a given organization, each robot is assigned to a role that governs its behavior and its interactions with the other members of the MRS. In this paper; we investigate in a class of problems where role allocation must be done dynamically. This applies, for example in the context of rescue robotic applications where neither the number of robots nor characteristics are known a priori. Furthermore, tasks to be performed are not necessarily all known or at least a portion of the information remains to be discovered (e.g. locations of victims). Finally, some robots may temporarily leave the MRS (for battery recharging) or permanently due to failure or breakage. We propose a solution that can dynamically allocate roles to robots and revise the allocation. This revision takes place in case of failure of agents or in case of discovery of a new task. This allocation allows agents to participate in several tasks. © 2012 ISCRAM.
