Decentralized overlapping control of a formation of unmanned aerial vehicles
Decentralized overlapping feedback laws are designed for a formation of unmanned aerial vehicles. The dynamic model of the formation with an information structure constraint in which each vehicle, except the leader, only detects the vehicle directly in front of it, is treated as an interconnected system with overlapping subsystems. Using the mathematical framework of the inclusion principle, the interconnected system is expanded into a higher dimensional space in which the subsystems appear to be disjoint. Then, at each subsystem, a static state feedback controller is designed to robustly stabilize the perturbed nominal dynamics of the subsystem. The design procedure is based on the application of convex optimization tools involving linear matrix inequalities. As a
