This note studies event-triggered control of Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) with first order integrator dynamics. It extends previous work on event-triggered consensus by considering limited communication capabilities through strict peer-to-peer non-continuous information exchange. The approach provides both a decentralized control law and a decentralized(More)
— The consensus problem with general linear dynamics and communication delays is investigated. An event-triggered consensus protocol is proposed, where each agent implements a model of the decoupled dynamics of its neighbors. This approach not only avoids the need for continuous communication between agents but also provides a decentralized and asynchronous(More)
The objective of this paper is to explore the feasibility of using multiple low-altitude, short endurance (LASE) unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) to cooperatively monitor and track the propagation of large forest fires. A real-time algorithm is described for tracking the perimeter of fires with an on-board infrared sensor. Using this algorithm, we develop a(More)
— This paper presents two control algorithms enabling a UAV to circumnavigate an unknown target using range and range rate (i.e., the derivative of range) measurements. Given a prescribed orbit radius, both control algorithms (i) tend to drive the UAV toward the tangent of prescribed orbit when the UAV is outside or on the orbit, and (ii) apply zero control(More)
— This paper presents event-triggered control techniques for the consensus problem with general linear dynamics. A novel consensus protocol is proposed, where each agent implements a model of the decoupled dynamics of its neighbors. We first provide a simple centralized condition to motivate the problem. Then, the focus is placed on designing decentralized(More)
