In this article we extend previous results for back-stepping and passivity-based design of cooperative control laws to a class of chained form systems that includes certain drift-free nonholonomic systems. We exploit the cascaded structure and feedback equivalence to passive systems to derive suitable control laws using a modified backstepping methodology. A virtual output is obtained and shared within the group in such a way that full state synchronization for the group is achieved. Given a… CONTINUE READING
