This paper details an endocrine based system which automatically reassigns tasks among heterogeneous robots dependent on the ability of the robot to do the task. This ability (or sensitivity) to a task is initialised for each individual robot after an evolutionary training stage, then constantly adapts as the robots perform the various tasks. The system does not require a centralised controller, and relies on little communication between the robots.
