Course Description
Multi-agent systems are systems composed of multiple interacting dynamic units. These units can be used to perform team objectives with applications ranging from formation flying to distributed computation. Challenges associated with these systems are their analysis and synthesis, arising due to their decoupled, distributed, large-scale nature, and due to limited inter-agent sensing/communication capabilities. This course provides an introduction to these systems via tools from graph theory and dynamic systems theory. The course will also cover real-world applications by presenting recent results obtained in the distributed formation control of real multi-robot systems.
