Network Connectivity Preserving Formation Stabilization and Obstacle Avoidance via a Decentralized Controller
TLDR
A decentralized control method is developed to enable a group of agents to achieve a desired global configuration while maintaining global network connectivity and avoiding obstacles, using only local feedback and no radio communication between the agents. Expand

Globally exponentially stable observer for vision-based range estimation
Abstract A reduced-order nonlinear observer is developed to estimate the distance from a moving camera to a feature point on a static object (i.e., range identification), where full velocity andExpand

Saturated RISE Feedback Control for a Class of Second-Order Nonlinear Systems
TLDR
A saturated controller is developed for a class of uncertain, second-order, nonlinear systems which includes time-varying and nonlinearly parameterized functions with bounded disturbances using a continuous control law with smooth saturation functions. Expand

Formation reconfiguration for mobile robots with network connectivity constraints
TLDR
We present an overview of the problem of formation control with network connectivity (FC+NC) constraints or goals, with a special focus on the use of networking techniques in formation reconfiguration with networking constraints. Expand
