Description

In the last decade the development and control of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) has attracted a lot of interest. Both researchers and companies have a growing interest in improving this type of vehicle given their many civilian and military applications. This book presents the state of the art in the area of UAV Flight Formation. The coordination and robust consensus approaches are presented in detail as well as formation flight control strategies which are validated in experimental platforms. It aims at helping students and academics alike to better understand what coordination and 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 Flight Formation.

About the Authors

José Alfredo Guerrero joined the Department of Electronic Engineering at the University Autonomous of Tamaulipas (UAT), Mexico in 2000 where he worked until 2006. His research interests are in the analysis and synthesis of multi-agent coordination control and nonlinear control with applications to Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, Autonomous Underwater Vehicles and robust and optimal control.
Rogelio Lozano, after holding various positions, including visiting positions at the University of Newcastle in Australia, NASA Langley Research Center, VA, and LAG in France, has been the head of the UMI 3175 LAFMIA at CINVESTAV Mexico since April 2008. He has been a CNRS Research Director since 1990 and acted as Associate Editor for Automatica and Int. J. of Adaptive Control and Signal Processing.
