Abstract：In recent years, the research of multirobot cooperative systems, especially based on the concept of multi-agent system in the field of Distributed Artificial Intelligence, has received much attention in robotics. In this paper, the state of the art of cooperative robotics is reviewed, and the trend in this field is also discussed.
