Students of the Master in Control Engineering (MCER) at Sapienza University of Rome.


The course presents the basic methods for modeling, analyzing and controlling multi-agent systems, with special emphasis on distributed strategies. Applications will be presented in the control of communication and electrical networks as well as of multi-robot systems. The student will be able to analyze and design architectures, algorithms, and modules for controlling multi-agent systems.


The course is organized in 2 parts:

For additional details and material, access the webpages of the individual parts by following the above links.


To obtain 6 credits for this course it is necessary to complete separate activities for Parts 1 and 2. In particular, for each part the student must
carry out a small project which typically requires reading some technical papers and performing some simulations. To register the final grade, sign-up via Infostud is required.
