In the classical robot motion paradigm, robots make it difficult to respond efficiently to the dynamically variable environment such as disaster area. In order to handle such a situation that may be changed dynamically, a technology that allows a dynamic execution of data transmission and physical/logical connection between multiple robots based on scenarios is required. In this paper, we introduce evolutionary robots and its dynamically reconstructible software function layer. Proposed software function layer can be added new software functions or updated and enhance the performance on existed functions, through the robot communications.
