We develop a formal tool for representing and analyzing informational aspects of robotic tasks, based on the formal concept of `knowledge.' Specically, we adopt the notion of
knowledge-based protocols from distributed systems, and dene the notions of knowledge complexity of a robotic task and knowledge capability of a robot. The resulting formalism
naturally captures previous work in the areas of robot information management, but is suciently rigorous and natural to allow many extensions. In this paper we show one novel application { the automated distribution of robotic tasks
