Synchronization of Information in Distributed Multiple Vehicle Coordinated Control

  title={Synchronization of Information in Distributed Multiple Vehicle Coordinated Control},
  author={Randal W. Beard and Vahram Stepanyan},
Cooperation in multiple vehicle teams requires that information be shared between team members. If shared information is not synchronized across the team, then cooperation is adversely affected. This paper considers the problem of information synchronization in multiple agent teams. We define notions of asymptotic synchronizability and show that a team of agents is asymptotically synchronizable if and only if the associated communication topology admits a spanning tree. A linear synchronization… CONTINUE READING
