Coordination of groups of mobile autonomous agents using nearest neighbor rules
TLDR
In a recent Physical Review Letters article, Vicsek et al. provide simulation results which demonstrate that the nearest neighbor rule they are studying can cause all agents to eventually move in the same direction despite the absence of centralized coordination and despite the fact that each agent's set of nearest neighbors change with time as the system evolves.

Stability of switched systems with average dwell-time
It is shown that switching among stable linear systems results in a stable system provided that switching is "slow-on-the-average". In particular, it is proved that exponential stability is achievedExpand

Basic problems in stability and design of switched systems
By a switched system, we mean a hybrid dynamical system consisting of a family of continuous-time subsystems and a rule that orchestrates the switching between them. The article surveys developmentsExpand

Supervisory control of families of linear set-point controllers - Part I. Exact matching
This paper describes a simple "high-level" controller called a "supervisor" which is capable of switching into feedback with a SISO process, a sequence of linear positioning or set-point controllersExpand

Systematic Design of Adaptive Controllers for Feedback Linearizable Systems
TLDR
A systematic procedure is developed for the design of new adaptive regulation and trackdng schemes for a class of feedback linearizable nonlinear systems for which global stabilization can be achieved. Expand

Towards mobility as a network control primitive
TLDR
In the near future, the advent of large-scale networks of mobile agents autonomously performing long-term sensing and communication tasks will be upon us. Expand

Rigidity, computation, and randomization in network localization
TLDR
We provide a theoretical foundation for the problem of network localization in which some nodes know their locations and other nodes determine their locations by measuring the distances to their neighbors. Expand

TLDR
This paper describes a simple, 'high-level' controller called a 'supervisor' which is capable of switching into feedback with a SISO process, a sequence of linear positioning or set-point controllers from a family /spl Fscr//sub C/ of candidate controllers, so as to cause the output of the process to approach and track a constant reference input.

Switching between stabilizing controllers
TLDR
We show that it is possible to find realizations for any given family of controller transfer matrices so that the closed-loop system remains stable, no matter how we switch among the controller. Expand
