Abstract: Cooperative control of multiple autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) plays an important role on marine scientific investigation and marine development. The formation of multi-AUV can significantly enhance applications on the marine sampling, imaging, surveillance and communications. Compared to the formation control of multi-robot, the formation control of multi-AUV is particularly difficult, especially on controlling attitude and direction of AUV; what is more, the communication method among AUVs is acoustic…
