Mechanical Engineering Seminar
Three mechanical engineering students will give a pre-presentation of a conference paper that will be presented in the ASME Dynamic Systems and Controls Conference (DSCC). The authors of this paper are Corey Dotson, Geronimo Macias, and Kooktae Lee.
This talk is "Energy-Balanced Leader-Switching Policy for Formation Rotation Control of Multi-Agent Systems Inspired by Bird Flocks."
1 p.m. in Weir 132. There is limited sitting in Weir 132 so pleaes RSVP as soon as possible.
This paper addresses an energy-balanced leader-switching policy for formation rotation control of multi-agent systems inspired by bird flocks. Birds that flock in V-formation with a leader rotation strategy are able to travel longer distances due to reduced drag and therefore less energy expenditure. The authors propose an energy-balanced leader-switching policy inspired by this bird flocking behavior in order to increase the flight range for multi-agent systems.
