Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In multi-robot system, communication is indispensable for effective cooperative working. It is quite general for multi-robot system to communicate directly by physical method such as light, sound etc, but it is well-known chemical communication is also useful as often observed in the insect world. Unfortunately, it is not easy to treat real chemical materials for robot system at this stage. In this paper, we propose "virtual pheromone system" in which chemical signals are expressed by computer graphics and the robots moves depending on the displayed color information. We confirmed the performance of this system through the foraging task which is generally observed in ant system.
