A distributed robust convergence algorithm for multi-robot systems in the presence of faulty robots

Hyongju Park, Seth Hutchinson
2015 2015 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS)  
These nonconforming robots correspond to faults in the multirobot systems, and our control policy is thus a fault-tolerant policy.  ...  In this paper, we propose a distributed control policy to achieve rendezvous by a set of robots even when some robots in the system do not follow the prescribed policy.  ...  Section II introduces fault-tolerant multi-robot system model that will be studied in the remainder of the paper.  ...

Fault Detection and Diagnosis in Multi-Robot Systems: A Survey

Eliahu Khalastchi, Meir Kalech
