Abstract

This chapter overviews recent research results in distributed multi-agent coordination. Distributed coordination of multiple autonomous agents, including unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs), and unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs), has been a very active research topic in the systems and controls society. The recent research results in distributed multi-agent coordination are roughly categorized as consensus, distributed formation control, distributed optimization, distributed task assignment, distributed estimation and control, and intelligent coordination. A short discussion is given to propose several future research directions and problems that deserve further investigation.
