• Containment in Leader-Follower Networks with Switching Communication Topologies 

      Notarstefano, Giuseppe; Egerstedt, Magnus B.; Haque, Musad A. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyElsevier, 2011)
      We study bipartite, first-order networks where the nodes take on leader or follower roles. Specifically, we let the leaders' positions be static and assume that leaders and followers communicate via an undirected switching ...
    • Leader Selection via the Manipulability of Leader-Follower Networks 

      Kawashima, Hiroaki; Egerstedt, Magnus B. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      In this paper, we address the problem of selecting leaders in a network by investigating how much instantaneous impact the leaders have on the remaining agents. As a measurement of the influence of leaders’ inputs, we ...
    • Team-Level Properties for Haptic Human-Swarm Interactions 

      Setter, Tina; Kawashima, Hiroaki; Egerstedt, Magnus B. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2015-07)
      This paper explores how haptic interfaces should be designed to enable effective human-swarm interactions. When a single operator is interacting with a team of mobile robots, there are certain properties of the team ...
