Distributed Control of Robotic Networks
by Francesco Bullo, Jorge Cortes, Sonia Martinez
Publisher: Princeton University Press 2009
Number of pages: 323
This self-contained introduction to the distributed control of robotic networks offers a distinctive blend of computer science and control theory. The book presents a broad set of tools for understanding coordination algorithms, determining their correctness, and assessing their complexity; and it analyzes various cooperative strategies for tasks such as consensus, rendezvous, connectivity maintenance, deployment, and boundary estimation.
