Special Note: More current information may be available at Plan-it Purple

This talk describes recent progress on motion coordination problems for multi-agent systems. The work is motivated by emerging applications in active sensor networks and autonomous robotic systems. We present algorithms for deployment, rendezvous and task allocation. The resulting closed-loop behaviors are adaptive, spatially distributed, and verifiably correct. We also discuss some novel tools in control theory (advanced LaSalle stability analysis), geometric optimization (task encoding methods), and computational geometry (proximity graphs and spatially distributed maps).
