A class of underwater vehicles are modelled as Newtonian particles for navigation and control. We show a general method that controls cooperative Newtonian particles to generate patterns on closed smooth curves. These patterns are chosen for good sampling performance using mobile sensor networks. We measure the spacing between neighbouring particles by the… CONTINUE READING
