We consider the problem of seeking the maximum of a scalar signal using a swarm of autonomous vehicles equipped with sensors that can take point measurements of the signal. Vehicles are not able toâ€¦ (More)

We investigate the problem of controlling the probability density of the state of a process that is observed by the controller via a fixed but unknown scalar non-negative function of the state. Theâ€¦ (More)

In this paper the robust behavior in some piecewise affine systems with minimally spaced transition times is studied. Such systems are found e.g. in satellites and satellite launchers. On-offâ€¦ (More)

In networked systems that suffer from data packet drops, transmitting multiple, redundant packets during each sampling interval can improve estimation performance, but at the expense of a higherâ€¦ (More)

We present a method for the construction of Foster-Lyapunov functions to prove ergodicity of hybrid piecewise-deterministic Markov processes. Our method searches for the Lyapunov function thatâ€¦ (More)

This article discusses optimal estimation and control for lossy networks. Conditions for stability are provided both for two-link and multiple-link networks. The online adaptation of networkâ€¦ (More)

In lossy networks the probability of successful communication can be significantly increased by transmitting multiple copies of a same message through independent channels. In this paper we show thatâ€¦ (More)

The purpose of this contribution is twofold: 1) to present for the first time a Lyapunov function that proves exponential ergodicity of a process studied by the authors in [1], where the problem ofâ€¦ (More)
