Book Description

This self-contained introduction to the distributed control of robotic networks offers a distinctive blend of computer science and control theory. The book presents a broad set of tools for understanding coordination algorithms, determining their correctness, and assessing their complexity; and it analyzes various cooperative strategies for tasks such as consensus, rendezvous, connectivity maintenance, deployment, and boundary estimation.

The unifying theme is a formal model for robotic networks that explicitly incorporates their communication, sensing, control, and processing capabilities -- a model that in turn leads to a common formal language to describe and analyze coordination algorithms.

  • Self-contained exposition of graph-theoretic concepts, distributed algorithms, and complexity measures for processor networks with fixed interconnection topology and for robotic networks with position-dependent interconnection topology
  • Detailed treatment of averaging and consensus algorithms interpreted as linear iterations on synchronous networks
  • Introduction of geometric notions such as partitions, proximity graphs, and multicenter functions
  • Detailed treatment of motion coordination algorithms for deployment, rendezvous, connectivity maintenance, and boundary estimation
