In this paper, we propose an idea for distance-based scaling of a directed formation of mobile autonomous agents in the plane. Based on the formation control strategies found in the literature, we introduce modified control laws that can be applied to single-integrator modeled agents so that the agents achieve the desired formation and formation scal ing. We provide full analysis that figures out exact conditions for the convergence of the agents to the desired formation. Simulation results to support our ana…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
