ABSTRACT
We design controllers that permit mobile agents with distributed or networked sensing capabilities to track (follow) desired trajectories, identify what trajectory information must be distributed to each agent for tracking, and develop methods to minimize the communication needed for the trajectory information distribution.
INDEX TERMS
Cooperative control, dynamical networks, tracking.
