Time-varying formation analysis problems for double-integrator multi-agent systems with jointly connected topologies are investigated. Different from the previous work on formation control, in this paper, the formation is specified by time-varying piecewise continuously differentiable vectors and the topology can be disconnected at any time instant. Firstly, a distributed formation control protocol is constructed using local neighbor-to-neighbor information. In the case where the switching… CONTINUE READING
