To perform cooperative tasks in a decentralized manner, multi-robot systems are often required to communicate with each other. Therefore, maintaining the communication graph connectivity is a fundamental issue. In this paper, we analyse the effects of different types of disturbances (failure and noise) in the communication between agents, upon a connectivity maintenance control strategy. The results show that the connectivity strategy is resilient to the negative effects of such disturbances… Expand
Noise-tolerance consensus formation control for multi-robotic networks
TLDR
The formation control for noise-tolerance consensus of multi-robotic networks and the mean square consensus condition is investigated and can indirectly obtain the evolution trend of position and velocity information of the robot. Expand
Connectivity Maintenance in Mobile Networks
TLDR
This work studies scenarios in which an initially connected network consisting of pre-deployed and intermediate nodes is exposed to mobility of the former, and proves that the general formulation of the problem is NP-hard. Expand
