ABSTRACT
In previous work, we introduced a novel swarming interpolation framework and validated its effectiveness on static fields. In this paper, we show that a slightly revised version of this framework is able to track fields that translate, rotate, or expand over time, enabling interpolation of both static and dynamic fields. Our framework can be used to control autonomous mobile sensors into flexible spatial arrangements in order to interpolate values of a field in an unknown region. The key advantage to this framework is that the stable sensor distribution can be chosen to resemble a Chebyshev distribution, which can be optimal for certain ideal geometries.
