ME4823 Cooperative Control of Multiple Marine Autonomous Vehicles

This course takes students through each stage involved in the design, modeling and evaluation of a multi-robot solutions to current and future naval challenges. The course provides students with an overview of the state-of-the-art in multi-robot control and the theoretical building blocks common to these methods. Students are presented with an authentic multi-robot control challenge which serves as the focus of the remainder of the course. Students are guided through a selection process to formulate multi-robot control techniques appropriate to the specific application. The course culminates with implementation of multi-robot control (in simulation and/or experiment) to quantitatively evaluate performance of student designs. PREREQUISITE: ME3801, ME3201
