This book provides a decentralized approach for the identification and control of robotics systems. It also presents recent research in decentralized neural control and includes applications to robotics. Decentralized control is free from difficulties due to complexity in design, debugging, data gathering and storage
A new distributed coordination algorithm for multi-vehicle systems is presented in this paper. Our algorithm is decentralized in that each vehicle needs only to know the position of neighboring vehicles, but no other inter-vehicle communication or centralized multi-robot systems; flocking; swarming; obstacle avoidance
swarm intelligence, and it was there I found an interest in the patrolling problem for multi-agent system. . This thesis deals with the development of a behavioral control for swarm-inspired multi-agent systems tasked with the for decentralized multi-agent systems formulated in the Null-Space-Based (NSB) framework.
