报告摘要:

Man-made multi-robot systems have been advancing apace with the help of high-performance hardware and computational technologies. Despite the high-performance computing, communication, sensing, and power devices used in these systems, their effectiveness in uncertain environments appears to still fall behind the natural systems such as a swarm of ants, a flock of birds, or a team of wolves. One of the challenges in multi-robot coordination is the lack of effective distributed algorithms and designs that enable the robots to work cooperatively and safely in uncertain environments.

This talk will present the state of the art and some recent research results on distributed algorithms and coordination control methods for cooperative multi-robot systems. The research on this topic has a wide range of potential engineering applications, including surveillance and search, smart manufacturing, smart logistics, environment monitoring, and unmanned exploration of dangerous areas.
