Formation Control of Underactuated Surface Vessels using the Null-Space-Based Behavioral Control
— In this paper the application of a behavior-based control approach, namely the Null-Space-based Behavioral control, to coordinate a fleet of autonomous surface vessels is presented. The NSB can be considered as a centralized guidance system aimed at driving the fleet in complex environments while simultaneously performing multiple tasks, i.e., obstacle avoidance or keeping a formation. In order to apply the guidance system to a fleet of underactuated surface vessels, the NSB works in combination with a low-level maneuvering control that, taking care of the dynamics of the vessels, elaborates the motion commands to generate the generalized forces at the actuators. The guidance system has been simulated in the accomplishment of a mission in presence of obstacles and sea current in the environment.
