Distributed Multi-Robot Formation Control
Dr. Mohammad Deghat
Research Fellow, University of Melbourne
Multi-agent systems are progressively being used in a broad range of applications such as multi-robot or multi-vehicle coordination and control, air traffic management systems, control of sensor networks, unmanned vehicles, energy systems and logistics. This presentation will review several concepts and results on multi-agent system control and will consider the types of communication, control and sensing architecture that allow preservation of the formation shape. It is assumed that the amount of sensing, communication and control computation by any agent is limited. For example, each agent is only able to communicate over a limited range and can only measure or receive its neighbours' state information.
