• Containment Control in Mobile Networks 

      Ji, Meng; Ferrari-Trecate, G.; Egerstedt, Magnus B.; Buffa, A. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2008-09)
      In this paper, the problem of driving a collection of mobile robots to a given target destination is studied. In particular, we are interested in achieving this transfer in an orderly manner so as to ensure that the agents ...
    • Hierarchical Containment Control in Heterogeneous Mobile Networks 

      Ji, Meng; Egerstedt, Magnus B.; Ferrari-Trecate, G.; Buffa, A. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyMathematical Theory of Networks and Systems, 2006-07)
      In this paper, the multi-agent containment problem is investigated. In particular, we focus our efforts on a continuation of our previous work on leader-follower networks, by imposing a hierarchical structure on the network ...
    • Laplacian Sheep: A Hybrid, Stop-Go Policy for Leader-Based Containment Control 

      Ferrari-Trecate, G.; Egerstedt, Magnus B.; Buffa, A.; Ji, Meng (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics EngineersSpringer Verlag, 2006-03)
      The problem of driving a collection of mobile robots to a given target location is studied in the context of partial difference equations. In particular, we are interested in achieving this transfer while ensuring that ...
