Yutong Liu – Formation Control and Reconfiguration strategies on Multi-agent Systems
March 23, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Multi-agent systems have attracted much attention due to its distributed nature. Formation control, which is one of the most active topics within the realm of multi-agent systems, generally aims to drive multiple agents to achieve prescribed objectives on their states. Based on the sensing capability and interaction topology, formation control can be divided into three catalogues, position-based formation control, displacement-based formation control and distance-based formation control. Two-stage reconfiguration strategy is an approach which can reduce the mission time via finding a special designated configuration (SD formation) during the spare time between two missions. In SD formation, all agents’ positions are as close as possible to all potential locations. This talk will introduce the basic definitions of multi-agent systems, and present two-reconfiguration strategies. Moreover progress on formation control on multi-agent system is also made. Finally some future works on ellipse agents without communication are given.
Yutong Liu received her Bachelor degree in Automation Engineering, and Master degree in Traffic Information Engineering and Control from Northwestern Polytechnical University, Xi’an, China in 2012 and 2015 respectively. Currently, she is pursuing her PhD study in School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering, the University of Adelaide, Australia. Her research interests include formation control and related issues of multi-agent systems and practical applications.
