The Cell Structured Robotic System CEBOT is a realization of a new class of Dynamically Reconfigurable Robotic Systems (DRRS). The modular cell structure allows unique features like dynamically reconfigurable structure, distributed intelligence, self-repairing capability, fault-tolerance, and applicability in hostile and restricted environments. We propose a concept, cell types and construction, control and sensor system structure, structure planning and communication methods for the advanced series II CEBOT.
