A scheduling method for distributed autonomous robotic systems (DRS) is proposed. Given the global task for a DRS, each robot generates a subtask according to the global load of the whole system and the partial capacity of individual robots. The determined schedule is then executed by a sign-board inter-robot communication. Some experiments of a three-robot system are performed using the proposed method.
