This paper described some essential characteristics of the self-reconfigurable robots. A model of description on self-reconfigurable robots, and a self-organizing metamorphic strategy of self-reconfigurable robots based on discrete local intelligence were proposed. This strategy results in the self-organization of robot system through local communication between modules, and the complexity of metamorphic algorithm is reduced. An illustration of 9 modules system was given to demonstrate the effectiveness of the strategy.
