Abstract: The metamorphic robots are a new sphere of robotics that belongs to the Distributed Artificial Intelligence realm. These robots can dynamically adapt their shape and have many useful applications in hostile enviroments on the Earth or on other planets in the space.

The metamorphic robot, considered in the paper is described as a multiagent system in generalized nets terms - a new tool for design and simulation that saves the logics and dynamics of the investigated objects but at the same time gives compact and full description.
