• Approximate Manipulability of Leader-Follower Networks 

      Kawashima, Hiroaki; Egerstedt, Magnus B. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2011-12)
      We introduce the notion of manipulability to leader-follower networks as a tool to analyze how effective inputs injected at a leader node are in terms of their impact on the movements of the follower nodes, as a function ...
    • Distribution of Agents in Heterogeneous Multi Agent Systems 

      Abbas, Waseem; Egerstedt, Magnus B. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2011-12)
      Heterogeneous multiagent systems are useful for performing various complex distributed tasks. The effectiveness and scope of service such systems provide, can be attributed to the distribution of agents of different types ...
    • Intruder Capturing Game on a Topological Map Assisted by Information Networks 

      Kim, Jonghoek; Maxon, Sean; Egerstedt, Magnus B.; Zhang, Fumin (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2011-12)
      Intruder capturing games on a topological map of a workspace with obstacles are investigated. Assuming that a searcher can access the position of any intruder utilizing information networks, we provide theoretical upper ...
    • Towards Power-Aware Rendezvous 

      Jaleel, Hassan; Bopardikar, Shaunak D.; Egerstedt, Magnus B. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2011-12)
      In this paper we connect the power consumed by agents in a network to how much they move. In other words, by moving around, the agents’ power levels decrease, which in turn impacts the range at which they can sense/communicate ...
