EECI08: Formation Control in Multi-Agent Systems
|Prev: Distributed Control||Course home||Next: Distributed Protocols|
We consider the problem of cooperation among a collection of vehicles performing a shared task using intervehicle communication to coordinate their actions. We prove a Nyquist criterion that uses the eigenvalues of the graph Laplacian matrix to determine the effect of the communication topology on formation stability.
