dc.description.abstractThe last few years have seen significant progress in our understanding of how one should structure multi-robot systems. New control, coordination, and communication strategies have emerged and, in this talk, we discuss some of these developments. In particular, we will show how one can go from global, geometric, team-level specifications to local coordination rules for achieving and maintaining formations, area coverage, and swarming behaviors. One aspect of this concerns how users can interact with networks of mobile robots in order to inject new, global information and objectives. We will also investigate what global objectives are fundamentally implementable in a distributed manner on a collection of spatially distributed and locally interacting agents.en_US
