  • Correll, Nikolaus; Martinoli, Alcherio; Amstutz, Patrick (Springer Netherlands, 2009-03)
    We study distributed boundary coverage of known environments using a team of miniature robots. Distributed boundary coverage is an instance of the multi-robot task-allocation problem and has applications in inspection, ...
  • McLurkin, James; Demaine, Erik D. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-12)
    We describe a distributed boundary detection algorithm suitable for use on multi-robot systems with dynamic network topologies. We assume that each robot has access to its local network geometry, which is the combination ...
  • Ponda, Sameera S.; Johnson, Luke B.; How, Jonathan P. (American Automatic Control Council, 2012-06)
    This research presents a distributed chanceconstrained task allocation framework that can be used to plan for multi-agent networked teams operating in stochastic and dynamic environments. The algorithm employs an approximation ...
  • Kuhn, Fabian; Lynch, Nancy Ann; Oshman, Rotem (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010)
    In this paper we investigate distributed computation in dynamic networks in which the network topology changes from round to round. We consider a worst-case model in which the communication links for each round are chosen ...
  • Baros, Stefanos; Ilić, Marija D. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017-05)
    Today the state-of-the-art (SoA) wind generators (WGs) are the double-fed induction (DFIGs) with integrated storage devices. In the future, these WGs are expected to be one of the largest producers of renewable energy ...
  • Ching, ShiNung; Brown, Emery N.; Kramer, Mark A. (American Physical Society, 2012-08)
    Brain electrical stimulation (BES) has long been suggested as a means of controlling pathological brain activity. In epilepsy, control of a spatially localized source, the seizure focus, may normalize neuronal dynamics. ...
  • Frazzoli, Emilio; Ramirez, Jaime L.; Pavone, Marco; Miller, David W. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-07)
    In this paper we study distributed control policies for spacecraft formations that draw inspiration from the simple idea of cyclic pursuit. First, we extend existing cyclic-pursuit control laws devised for single-integrator ...
  • Poduri, Sameera; Sukhatme, Gaurav S.; Deshpande, Ajay A.; Rus, Daniela L. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-07)
    This paper addresses the problem of coverage control of a network of mobile sensors. In the current literature, this is commonly formulated as a locational optimization problem under the assumption that sensing performance ...
  • Zhu, Minghui; Martínez, Sonia (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2013-01)
    Inspired by current challenges in data-intensive and energy-limited sensor networks, we formulate a coverage optimization problem for mobile sensors as a (constrained) repeated multiplayer game. Each sensor tries to optimize ...
  • Eryilmaz, Atilla; Ozdaglar, Asuman E.; Shah, Devavrat; Modiano, Eytan H. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-04)
    In this paper, we provide and study a general framework that facilitates the development of distributed mechanisms to achieve full utilization of multihop wireless networks. In particular, we describe a generic randomized ...
  • Agaskar, Ameya P.; He, Ting; Tong, Lang (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-05)
    The problem of detecting multihop information flows subject to communication constraints is considered. In a distributed detection scheme, eavesdroppers are deployed near nodes in a network, each able to measure the ...
  • Gattami, Ather Said (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-06)
    In this paper we study distributed estimation and control problems over graphs under partially nested information patterns. We show a duality result that is very similar to the classical duality result between state ...
  • Dimarogonas, Dimos V.; Frazzoli, Emilio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-01)
    Event-driven strategies for distributed multi-agent systems are motivated by the future use of embedded microprocessors with limited resources that will gather information and actuate the individual agent controller updates. ...
  • Le Ny, Jerome; Balakrishnan, Hamsa (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-06)
    This paper proposes an Eulerian model of traffic flows in the National Airspace System (NAS) and presents a distributed feedback control approach for managing the flows. The main contribution is the development of a model ...
  • Keshet, Aviv; Ketterle, Wolfgang (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2013-01)
    Atomic physics experiments often require a complex sequence of precisely timed computer controlled events. This paper describes a distributed graphical user interface-based control system designed with such experiments in ...
  • Ghaffari, Mohsen; Musco, Cameron Nicholas; Radeva, Tsvetomira T.; Lynch, Nancy Ann (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2015-07)
    We introduce the study of the ant colony house-hunting problem from a distributed computing perspective. When an ant colony's nest becomes unsuitable due to size constraints or damage, the colony relocates to a new nest. ...
  • Perreault, David J.; Kassakian, John G. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 1997-08)
    This paper introduces a distributed approach to interleaving paralleled power converter cells. Unlike conventional methods, the distributed approach requires no centralized control, automatically accommodates varying numbers ...
  • Chowdhary, Girish; Vian, John; Ure, N. Kemal; Chen, Yu Fan; How, Jonathan P. (Springer Netherlands, 2013-11)
    This paper considers the problem of multiagent sequential decision making under uncertainty and incomplete knowledge of the state transition model. A distributed learning framework, where each agent learns an individual ...
  • Sorin, Fabien; Lestoquoy, Guillaume; Danto, Sylvain; Joannopoulos, John D.; Fink, Yoel (Optical Society of America, 2010-05)
    We report on a photoconductive fiber that supports decaying and convex electrical potential profiles capable of localizing a point of illumination, and propose a scheme to perform distributed optical sensing.
  • Roozbehani, Mardavij; Megretski, Alexandre; Frazzoli, Emilio; Feron, Eric (Spring Berlin/Heidelberg, 2008-07)
    In previous works, the authors introduced a framework for software analysis, which is based on optimization of Lyapunov invariants. These invariants prove critical software properties such as absence of overflow and ...
