Kaveh Fathian, Sleiman Safaoui, Tyler H. Summers, Nicholas R. Gans
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Our approach is based on the barycentric-coordinate-based (BCB) control, which is fully distributed, does not require inter-agent communication or a common sense of orientation, and can be implemented  ...  We further show that under our proposed BCB control design, the agents can move along a rotated and scaled control direction without affecting the convergence to the desired formation.  ...  Our approach is based on the barycentric-coordinate-based (BCB) control, which is fully distributed, does not require inter-agent communication or a common sense of orientation, and can be implemented  ...
