Stabilization of collective motion in a time-invariant flowfield on a rotating sphere

  title={Stabilization of collective motion in a time-invariant flowfield on a rotating sphere},
  author={Sonia Hernandez and Derek A. Paley},
  journal={2009 American Control Conference},
We provide Lyapunov-based control laws that stabilize relative equilibria in a model consisting of particles that travel on the surface of a rotating sphere in a time-invariant flowfield. These control laws are of interest because they have applications in planetary-scale mobile sensing networks in air and sea. A rotating sphere is introduced so that the particles are subject to the Coriolis effect that occurs on the Earth. A point vortex generates a time-invariant flowfield in the model and… CONTINUE READING
