    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3039 KB)

    Many applications, such as environmental monitoring, security and surveillance, scientific exploration, and intelligent transportation, share a fundamental need to accomplish multiple tasks across space and time that are beyond the capabilities of a single autonomous platform. The growing demand for autonomous multivehicle networks has stimulated a broad interest in distributed control and estimat... View full abstract»

    High-accuracy localization is a fundamental capability that is essential for autonomous reliable operation in numerous applications, including autonomous driving, monitoring of an environmental phenomena, mapping, and tracking. The problem can be formulated as inference over the robot's state and possibly additional variables of interest based on incoming sensor measurements and a priori informati... View full abstract»

    Cooperation between multiple robots or sensing devices, such as cell phones or head-mounted displays, can have great benefits in many different situations. Cooperating robots can maneuver through tight spaces, perform tasks in parallel, and increase redundancy and robustness to failure, while humans using intelligently connected devices can share augmented reality experiences. For coordination to ... View full abstract»

    Technological advances in ad hoc networking and the miniaturization of electromechanical systems are making possible the use of large numbers of mobile agents (for example, mobile robots, human agents, and unmanned vehicles) to perform surveillance, search and rescue, transport, and delivery tasks in aerial, underwater, space, and land environments. However, the successful execution of such tasks ... View full abstract»

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):102 - 116
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2606 KB)

    Many complex systems, ranging from renewable resources [1] to very-large-scale robotic systems (VLRS) [2], can be described as multiscale dynamical systems comprising many interactive agents. In recent years, significant progress has been made in the formation control and stability analysis of teams of agents, such as robots, or autonomous vehicles. In these systems, the mutual goals of the agents... View full abstract»
