Abstract

Due to the limitations of sensors, each member of a decentralized system can only deal with local information respectively. A description of local relationship within formation pattern is proposed in this paper. Furthermore, a NN control approach with robust term is proposed to control individual motion. By using such individual control method, all robots will finally form a unique formation. Based on properties of such control strategy, we propose a modified artificial potential approach to realize obstacle avoidance.
