About this book
Team Cooperation in a Network of Multi-Vehicle Unmanned Systems develops a framework for modeling and control of a network of multi-agent unmanned systems in a cooperative manner and with consideration of non-ideal and practical considerations. The main focus of this book is the development of “synthesis-based” algorithms rather than on conventional “analysis-based” approaches to the team cooperation, specifically the team consensus problems. The authors provide a set of modified “design-based” consensus algorithms whose optimality is verified through introduction of performance indices.
This book also:
Provides synthesis-based methodology for team cooperation
Introduces a consensus-protocol optimized performance index
Offers comparisons for use of proper indices in measuring team performance
Analyzes and predicts performance of previously designed consensus algorithms
Analyses and predicts team behavior in the presence of non-ideal considerations such as actuator anomalies and faults as well as the evolutions in the structure of the information exchange
Team Cooperation in a Network of Multi-Vehicle Unmanned Systems is an ideal book for researchers as well as graduate-level university students who desire to work in the area of networked unmanned systems.
