This paper considers formation shape control of a team of four agents in the plane, motivated by an example from [1]. We utilize bidirectional, gradient-based interagent distance control laws which are designed so that the agents cooperatively achieve a specified desired formation shape. When every interagent distance is actively controlled (i.e. the information architecture is a complete graph), there may exist equilibrium formation shapes with incorrect interagent distances. We prove that any… CONTINUE READING
