Advanced laboratory automation has been changing the working process of life science laboratories. With an increasing use of different kinds of mobile robots in life science laboratories their effective integration with other existing automatic systems is a considerable issue. In this study a common wireless control system (CWCS) based on standard APIs of robots is developed to enable a stable multi-robot transportation in distributed life science laboratories. This system consists of robot board control centers (PCs), a remote server control center (PC), a wireless communication network and an infrared radio navigation module with ceiling passive landmarks.
