This 3-credits module is part of Elective in Robotics, a 4-module course offered to students
of the Master in "Artificial Intelligence and Robotics" at Sapienza
University of Rome. It can also be taken by students of the Master in
"Control Engineering" as one of the two modules of Control Problems in Robotics
(it cannot be taken by students that have chosen to
include Control of Multi-Agent Autonomous Systems in their curriculum).
The module presents the basic methods for analyzing and controlling multi-robot systems, with applications to teams of UAVs (quadrotors), mobile manipulators and wheeled mobile robots.
Some introductory videos are on these YouTube channels: RoboticsLabSapienza and MPIRobotics.
Textbook: M. Mesbahi and M. Egerstedt, "Graph Theoretic Methods in Multiagent Systems," Princeton University Press, 2010.
Any student who has attended at least 2/3 of the lectures can pass this module by either giving a presentation
on a certain topic (based on technical papers) or developing a small
project (typically involving simulations). For more details, see the
main pages of Elective in Robotics or Control Problems in Robotics.
