dc.description.abstractThis 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 complex cyberphysical system (CPS) engineering problems. For the project, students design control laws to coordinate a team of simulated robots in completing a set of mission objectives within a custom developed virtual environment. The virtual environment lets students script high-level algorithms and experience how their computational solutions perform when coupled with both physical constraints and environmental factors, as is often the case in real robotics applications. By allowing certain physical domain effects to be toggled on or off, students learn to iteratively adapt theoretical solutions based on simplified mathematical models to obtain engineering solutions for complex CPS problems.en_US
