This paper addresses the problem underlying the control and coordi- nation of multiple autonomous airships that must travel maintaining a desired geometric formation and simultaneously avoid collisions with moving or station- ary obstacles. The control architecture is based on the attractor dynamics ap- proach to behaviour generation. The airship physical model is presented and the mathematical background for the control architecture is explained. Simulations (with perturbations) with… CONTINUE READING
