Title: Coordinated control strategies for networked vehicles: an application to autonomous underwater vehicles
Issue Date: 2002
Abstract: The specification and design of coordinated control strategies for networked vehiclesand systems is discussed. A strategy to find the local minimum of an oceanographicscalar field with networked autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) is presented. Thestrategy consists in coordinating the motions of the AUVs to implement a modifiedversion of the simplex optimization algorithm. In the original algorithm, the scalarfield is given by a function. In the modified version, the scalar field is given by thephenomenon itself. The AUVs sample the phenomenon to calculate the directions ofdescent, and to minimize the phenomenon along each direction of descent. The strategyis discussed in the more general context of coordination and control of networkedvehicles and systems.
