报告题目：Formation Control for Multi-agent Systems: Introduction, Analysis and Design
Multi-agentSystems (MAS) are systems with characteristics of cooperation anddecentralization.As the agents often work under complex circumstances, limitations of the hardware that include limited passive sensing and active communication capabilities are likely to be present. As a result of the localization conditions above, the agents need to cooperate in a distributed manner to achieve a common goal. Formation control, which is one of the most popular topics within the realm of multi-agent systems, generally aims to drive multiple agents to reach and maintain a desired formation. In this talk, depending on the agents’ sensing and interaction capabilities, a variety of formation control problems and some applications are introduced. Theanalysis and designofdistributedformationcontrolwith limited sensing capabilityandactive communication strategies are provided. Under complex circumstances, issues on collision avoidance and system robustness for MAS are also addressed. Simulation and Lab experimental results are given to demonstrate the effectiveness of some design schemes proposed in our group.
