  • W. Ren, R. Beard
  • Computer Science
  • Communications and Control Engineering
  • 12 December 2007
TLDR
Distributed Consensus in Multi-vehicle Cooperative Control develops distributed consensus strategies designed to ensure that the information states of all vehicles in a network converge to a common value, minimizing power consumption and the deleterious effects of range and other restrictions.
