The development of decentralized control methodologies for navigation of multi-robot/vehicle systems is of paramount importance for the faster convergence and overall deployment of such systems in various applications including formation control, search and rescue missions, manufacturing, multi-UAV/UGV operations and many more. On the other hand, it is important to consider network and limited communication aspects between the agents when designing such controllers. While a lot of research has been devoted to both aspects
of multi-agent control, there is still shortage in the unification of navigation and networked specs. In this talk I will present parts of our research within the two areas and propose possible future research directions towards unification.
Dimos V. Dimarogonas was born in Athens,Greece in 1978. He received the Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2001 and the PhD in Mechanical Engineering in 2006, both from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Greece. Between May 2007 and February 2009, he was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Automatic Control Laboratory, School of Electrical Engineering, ACCESS Linnaeus Center, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden. He was one of the four recipients of the KTH ACCESS Linnaeus Center Award for best post-doctorial application, selected among more than one hundred candidates. Between February 2009 and March 2010, he was a Postdoctoral Associate at the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Boston, MA, USA. He is currently an Assistant Professor at the Automatic Control Laboratory, ACCESS Linnaeus Center, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden.
His current research interests include Multi-Agent Systems, Hybrid Systems and Control, Robot Navigation and Networked Control. He is a member of the Technical Chamber of Greece.
