Controlling a team of ground robots via an aerial robot
— We consider the task of controlling a large team of nonholonomic ground robots with an unmanned aerial vehicle in a decentralized manner that is invariant to the number of ground robots. The central idea is the development of an ion for the team of ground robots that allows the aerial platform to control the team without any knowledge of the specificity of individual vehicles. This happens in much the same way as a human operator can control a single robot vehicle by simply commanding the forward and turning velocities without a detailed knowledge of the specifics of the robot. raction includes a gross model of the shape of the formation of the team and information about the position and orientation of the team in the plane. We derive controllers that allow the team of robots to move in formation while avoiding ns and respecting the abstraction commanded by the aerial platform. We provide simulation and experimental results using a team of indoor mobile robots and a three-dimensi...
