Flight Formation Control

Flight Formation Control

In the last decade the development and control of UnmannedAerial Vehicles (UAVs) has attracted a lot of interest. Bothresearchers and companies have a growing interest in improving thistype of vehicle given their many civilian and militaryapplications. This book presents the state of the art in the area of UAV FlightFormation. The coordination and robust consensus approaches arepresented in detail as well as formation flight control strategieswhich are validated in experimental platforms. It aims at helpingstudents and academics alike to better understand what coordinationand flight formation control can make possible. Several novel methods are presented: - controllability and observability of multi-agent systems; - robust consensus; - flight formation control; - stability of formations over noisy networks; which generate solutions of guaranteed performance for UAV FlightFormation.
