Cooperative Control of Multi Agent Systems Book Review:

Cooperative Control of Multi-Agent Systems extends optimal control and adaptive control design methods to multi-agent systems on communication graphs. It develops Riccati design techniques for general linear dynamics for cooperative state feedback design, cooperative observer design, and cooperative dynamic output feedback design. Both continuous-time and discrete-time dynamical multi-agent systems are treated. Optimal cooperative control is introduced and neural adaptive design techniques for multi-agent nonlinear systems with unknown dynamics, which are rarely treated in literature are developed. Results spanning systems with first-, second- and on up to general high-order nonlinear dynamics are presented. Each control methodology proposed is developed by rigorous proofs. All algorithms are justified by simulation examples. The text is self-contained and will serve as an excellent comprehensive source of information for researchers and graduate students working with multi-agent systems.

Cooperative Control of Multi Agent Systems Book Review:

Distributed controller design is generally a challenging task, especially for multi-agent systems with complex dynamics, due to the interconnected effect of the agent dynamics, the interaction graph among agents, and the cooperative control laws. Cooperative Control of Multi-Agent Systems: A Consensus Region Approach offers a systematic framework for designing distributed controllers for multi-agent systems with general linear agent dynamics, linear agent dynamics with uncertainties, and Lipschitz nonlinear agent dynamics. Beginning with an introduction to cooperative control and graph theory, this monograph: Explores the consensus control problem for continuous-time and discrete-time linear multi-agent systems Studies the H∞ and H2 consensus problems for linear multi-agent systems subject to external disturbances Designs distributed adaptive consensus protocols for continuous-time linear multi-agent systems Considers the distributed tracking control problem for linear multi-agent systems with a leader of nonzero control input Examines the distributed containment control problem for the case with multiple leaders Covers the robust cooperative control problem for multi-agent systems with linear nominal agent dynamics subject to heterogeneous matching uncertainties Discusses the global consensus problem for Lipschitz nonlinear multi-agent systems Cooperative Control of Multi-Agent Systems: A Consensus Region Approach provides a novel approach to designing distributed cooperative protocols for multi-agent systems with complex dynamics. The proposed consensus region decouples the design of the feedback gain matrices of the cooperative protocols from the communication graph and serves as a measure for the robustness of the protocols to variations of the communication graph. By exploiting the decoupling feature, adaptive cooperative protocols are presented that can be designed and implemented in a fully distributed fashion.

Cooperative Control of Distributed Multi Agent Systems Book Review:

The paradigm of ‘multi-agent’ cooperative control is the challenge frontier for new control system application domains, and as a research area it has experienced a considerable increase in activity in recent years. This volume, the result of a UCLA collaborative project with Caltech, Cornell and MIT, presents cutting edge results in terms of the “dimensions” of cooperative control from leading researchers worldwide. This dimensional decomposition allows the reader to assess the multi-faceted landscape of cooperative control. Cooperative Control of Distributed Multi-Agent Systems is organized into four main themes, or dimensions, of cooperative control: distributed control and computation, adversarial interactions, uncertain evolution and complexity management. The military application of autonomous vehicles systems or multiple unmanned vehicles is primarily targeted; however much of the material is relevant to a broader range of multi-agent systems including cooperative robotics, distributed computing, sensor networks and data network congestion control. Cooperative Control of Distributed Multi-Agent Systems offers the reader an organized presentation of a variety of recent research advances, supporting software and experimental data on the resolution of the cooperative control problem. It will appeal to senior academics, researchers and graduate students as well as engineers working in the areas of cooperative systems, control and optimization.

Fixed Time Cooperative Control of Multi Agent Systems Book Review:

This monograph presents new theories and methods for fixed-time cooperative control of multi-agent systems. Fundamental concepts of fixed-time stability and stabilization are introduced with insightful understanding. This book presents solutions for several problems of fixed-time cooperative control using systematic design methods. The book compares fixed-time cooperative control with asymptotic cooperative control, demonstrating how the former can achieve better closed-loop performance and disturbance rejection properties. It also discusses the differences from finite-time control, and shows how fixed-time cooperative control can produce the faster rate of convergence and provide an explicit estimate of the settling time independent of initial conditions. This monograph presents multiple applications of fixed-time control schemes, including to distributed optimization of multi-agent systems, making it useful to students, researchers and engineers alike.

Multiagent Systems Book Review:

Multiagent systems (MAS) are one of the most exciting and the fastest growing domains in the intelligent resource management and agent-oriented technology, which deals with modeling of autonomous decisions making entities. Recent developments have produced very encouraging results in the novel approach of handling multiplayer interactive systems. In particular, the multiagent system approach is adapted to model, control, manage or test the operations and management of several system applications including multi-vehicles, microgrids, multi-robots, where agents represent individual entities in the network. Each participant is modeled as an autonomous participant with independent strategies and responses to outcomes. They are able to operate autonomously and interact pro-actively with their environment. In recent works, the problem of information consensus is addressed, where a team of vehicles communicate with each other to agree on key pieces of information that enable them to work together in a coordinated fashion. The problem is challenging because communication channels have limited range and there are possibilities of fading and dropout. The book comprises chapters on synchronization and consensus in multiagent systems. It shows that the joint presentation of synchronization and consensus enables readers to learn about similarities and differences of both concepts. It reviews the cooperative control of multi-agent dynamical systems interconnected by a communication network topology. Using the terminology of cooperative control, each system is endowed with its own state variable and dynamics. A fundamental problem in multi-agent dynamical systems on networks is the design of distributed protocols that guarantee consensus or synchronization in the sense that the states of all the systems reach the same value. It is evident from the results that research in multiagent systems offer opportunities for further developments in theoretical, simulation and implementations. This book attempts to fill this gap and aims at presenting a comprehensive volume that documents theoretical aspects and practical applications.

Cooperative Coordination and Formation Control for Multi agent Systems Book Review:

The thesis presents new results on multi-agent formation control, focusing on the distributed stabilization control of rigid formation shapes. It analyzes a range of current research problems such as problems concerning the equilibrium and stability of formation control systems, or the problem of cooperative coordination control when agents have general dynamical models, and discusses practical considerations arising during the implementation of established formation control algorithms. In addition, the thesis presents models of increasing complexity, from single integrator models, to double integrator models, to agents modeled by nonlinear kinematic and dynamic equations, including the familiar unicycle model and nonlinear system equations with drift terms. Presenting the fruits of a close collaboration between several top control groups at leading universities including Yale University, Groningen University, Purdue University and Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST), the thesis spans various research areas, including robustness issues in formations, quantization-based coordination, exponential stability in formation systems, and cooperative coordination of networked heterogeneous systems.

Distributed Cooperative Control for Multi agent Systems Book Review:

This dissertation focuses on distributed cooperative control of multi-agent systems. First, the leader-following consensus for multi-agent systems with nonlinear dynamics is investigated. Three consensus algorithms are proposed and some sufficient conditions are obtained for the states of followers converging to the state of virtual leader globally exponentially. Second, the consensus tracking for multi-agent systems with nonlinear dynamics is investigated. Some consensus tracking algorithms are developed, and some sufficient conditions are obtained. Based on these consensus tracking algorithms and sufficient conditions, it is shown that in first-order multi-agent systems all followers can track the virtual leader in finite time, and in second-order multi-agent systems the consensus tracking can be achieved at least globally exponentially. Third, the path planning and motion control of multi-agent formation is studied, where a practical framework is provided. In order to find a collision-free and deadlock-free feasible path for the whole formation, an optimizing algorithm is given to optimize the path generated by A* search algorithm. In order to realize the cohesive motion of a persistent formation in 3-dimensional space, a set of decentralized control laws is designed. Finally, the formation keeping problem is studied. We mainly focus on the closing ranks problem, which deals with the addition of links to a rigid multi-agent formation that is "damaged" by losing one of its agents, in order to recover rigidity. Some graph theoretical results are obtained, and some systematic 'self-repair' operations are proposed to recover the rigidity in case of agent removals.

Cooperative Control of Dynamical Systems Book Review:

Stability theory has allowed us to study both qualitative and quantitative properties of dynamical systems, and control theory has played a key role in designing numerous systems. Contemporary sensing and communication n- works enable collection and subscription of geographically-distributed inf- mation and such information can be used to enhance signi?cantly the perf- manceofmanyofexisting systems. Throughasharedsensing/communication network,heterogeneoussystemscannowbecontrolledtooperaterobustlyand autonomously; cooperative control is to make the systems act as one group and exhibit certain cooperative behavior, and it must be pliable to physical and environmental constraints as well as be robust to intermittency, latency and changing patterns of the information ?ow in the network. This book attempts to provide a detailed coverage on the tools of and the results on analyzing and synthesizing cooperative systems. Dynamical systems under consideration can be either continuous-time or discrete-time, either linear or non-linear, and either unconstrained or constrained. Technical contents of the book are divided into three parts. The ?rst part consists of Chapters 1, 2, and 4. Chapter 1 provides an overview of coope- tive behaviors, kinematical and dynamical modeling approaches, and typical vehicle models. Chapter 2 contains a review of standard analysis and design tools in both linear control theory and non-linear control theory. Chapter 4 is a focused treatment of non-negativematrices and their properties,multipli- tive sequence convergence of non-negative and row-stochastic matrices, and the presence of these matrices and sequences in linear cooperative systems.

Cooperative Control of Multi agent Systems Stability Optimality and Robustness Book Review:

In this work design methods are given for distributed synchronization control of multi-agent systems on directed communication graphs. Conditions are derived based on the relation of the graph eigenvalues to a region in a complex plane that depends on the single-agent system and the solution of the local Riccati equation. The synchronizing region concept is used. Cooperative observer design, guaranteeing convergence of the local estimates to their true values, is also proposed. The notion of convergence region for distributed observers is introduced. A duality principle is shown to hold for distributed observers and controllers on balanced graph topologies. Application of cooperative observers is made to the distributed synchronization problem. Three dynamic regulator architectures are proposed for cooperative synchronization.In the second part this work brings together stability and optimality theory to design distributed cooperative control protocols, which guarantee consensus and are globally optimal with respect to a structured performance criterion. Here an inverse optimality approach is used together with partial stability to consider cooperative consensus and synchronization algorithms. A new class of digraphs is defined admitting a distributed solution to the global optimal control problem.The third part of this work investigates cooperative control performance under disturbances, and distributed static output-feedback control. Control design for the state consensus in presence of disturbances is investigated. Derived results are also applicable to multi-agent systems with heterogeneous agents. If, on the other hand, one constrains the control to be of the static output-feedback form, one needs to redefine the synchronizing region as the output-feedback synchronizing region.Contributions to Discrete-time Multi-agent Consensus ProblemThe main contribution to the discrete-time multi-agent consensus problem is the proposed design method based on local Riccati feedback gains, guaranteeing cooperative stability and convergence to consensus.Contributions to Globally Optimal Distributed Control ProblemThe globally optimal distributed synchronization control protocols are investigated. The main contribution is in merging the notions of inverse optimality and partial stability to guarantee robust stabilization to the noncompact consensus manifold. Furthermore, second contribution is the introduction of the class of digraphs that gives a distributed solution to a structured global optimal control problem.Contributions to Cooperative Robustness of Multi-agent SystemsThe robustness properties of asymptotic and exponential stability are applied in the context of cooperative stability for consensus. The results are based on Lyapunov functions for noncompact manifolds, and the pertinent stability and robustness properties are further elaborated. Distributed and local observers are utilized for disturbance compensation. Contributions to Distributed Output-feedback for State SynchronizationAn application of the cooperative stability analysis, via synchronizing region, to the distributed output-feedback is presented. It is shown that the guaranteed synchronizing region for output-feedback can be both bounded and unbounded.

Robust Cooperative Control of Multi Agent Systems Book Review:

This book presents a concise introduction to the latest advances in robust cooperative control design for multi-agent systems with input delay and external disturbances, especially from a prediction and observation perspective. The volume covers a wide range of applications, such as the trajectory tracking of quadrotors, formation flying of multiple unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and fixed-time formation of ground vehicles. Robust cooperative control means that multi-agent systems are able to achieve specified control tasks while remaining robust in the face of both parametric and nonparametric model uncertainties. In addition, the authors cover a wide range of key issues in cooperative control, such as communication and input delays, parametric model uncertainties and external disturbances. Moving beyond the scope of existing works, a systematic prediction and observation approach to designing robust cooperative control laws is presented.

Cooperative Control of Multi agent Systems Book Review:

This graduate project focuses on various algorithms within subject of cooperative control of multi-agent systems. It begins with background information on graph theory and mathematical preliminaries utilized in multi-agent systems, and explains consensus, flocking, and formation algorithms in theoretical details and via simulations. Consensus algorithm is described for both continuous and discrete-time with mathematical examples; Flocking algorithm based on Craig Reynolds’ rule is presented in terms of collision avoidance, velocity matching and flock centering. Formation control algorithm is studied in theoretical details and software simulations, with emphasis on generating pre-defined formations by examining feedback gains. Throughout this project, MATLAB simulations are conducted to illustrate each of the above three algorithms. For consensus algorithms, consensus convergence rates are compared for undirected versus directed networks. For flocking algorithms, behaviors of multi-agent systems are analyzed using Reynolds’ rule. To conclude, formation control algorithm is examined to obtain desired shapes starting at a random state by varying feedback gains.
