    • Air Traffic Maximization for the Terminal Phase of Flight Under FAA's NextGen Framework 

      Chipalkatty, Rahul; Rahmani, Amir R.; Egerstedt, Magnus B.; Young, R.; Twu, Philip Y. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-10)
      The NextGen program is the FAA's response to the ever increasing air traffic, that provides tools to increase the capacity of national airspace, while ensuring the safety of aircraft. In support of this vision, this paper ...
    • Controllability of Homogeneous Single-Leader Networks 

      Egerstedt, Magnus B.; Martini, Simone; Twu, Philip Y. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-12)
      This paper addresses an aspect of controllability in a single-leader network when the agents are homogeneous. In such a network, indices are not assigned to the individual agents and controllability, which is typically ...
    • A Controlled-Precision Algorithm for Mode-Switching Optimization 

      Wardi, Yorai; Egerstedt, Magnus B.; Twu, Philip Y. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2012-12)
      This paper describes an adaptive-precision algorithm for solving a general optimal mode-scheduling problem in switched-mode dynamical systems. The problem is complicated by the fact that the controlled variable has discrete ...
    • Distributed Scheduling for Air Traffic Throughput Maximization During the Terminal Phase of Flight 

      Chipalkatty, Rahul; Rahmani, Amir R.; Egerstedt, Magnus B.; Twu, Philip Y. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-12)
      FAA’s NextGen program aims at increasing the capacity of the national airspace, while ensuring the safety of aircraft. This paper provides a distributed merging and spacing algorithm that maximizes the throughput at the ...
    • Graph Process Specifications for Hybrid Networked Systems 

      Martin, Patrick; Egerstedt, Magnus B.; Twu, Philip Y. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-08)
      Research in multi-agent systems has supplied a diverse collection of decentralized controllers to accomplish specific tasks. When agents execute a sequence of these controllers, the network behaves as a hybrid system, ...
    • Graph Process Specifications for Hybrid Networked Systems 

      Twu, Philip Y.; Martin, Patrick; Egerstedt, Magnus B. (Georgia Institute of TechnologySpringer, 2012-12)
      Many large-scale multi-agent missions consist of a sequence of subtasks, each of which can be accomplished separately by having agents execute appropriate decentralized controllers. However, many decentralized controllers ...
    • A Measure of Heterogeneity in Multi-Agent Systems 

      Twu, Philip; Mostofi, Yasamin; Egerstedt, Magnus B. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2014-06)
      Heterogeneous multi-agent systems have previously been studied and deployed to solve a number of different tasks. Despite this, we still lack a basic understanding of just what “heterogeneity” really is. For example, what ...
    • Merging and Spacing of Heterogeneous Aircraft in Support of NextGen 

      Chipalkatty, Rahul; Twu, Philip Y.; Rahmani, Amir R.; Egerstedt, Magnus B. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAmerican Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2012-09)
      FAA’s NextGen program aims to increase the capacity of the national airspace, while ensuring the safety of aircraft. This paper provides a distributed merging and spacing algorithm that maximizes the throughput at the ...
    • Multi-Robot Search and Rescue: An Open-Ended Educational Bridge Between Theory and Practice 

      Twu, Philip Y.; Egerstedt, Magnus B. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-04)
      This paper reports on a multi-robot search and rescue final project that has been used at the Georgia Institute of Technology to educate students on how to methodically apply networked control theory concepts towards solving ...
    • On-line Optimal Timing Control of Switched Systems 

      Wardi, Yorai; Egerstedt, Magnus B.; Twu, Philip Y. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-12)
      This paper considers a real-time algorithm for performance optimization of switched-mode hybrid dynamical systems. The controlled parameter consists of the switching times between the modes, and the cost criterion has the ...
    • Optimal Decentralization of Multi-Agent Motions 

      Egerstedt, Magnus B.; Twu, Philip Y. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAmerican Automatic Control Council, 2010-07)
      This paper addresses how to optimally decentralize the execution of a multi-agent mission defined at the trajectory-level, where the information flow among agents in the system are limited by a predefined network ...
