Non-Linear Flocking Networks with Collision Avoidance
Baras, John, S.
Date: July 28 - July 30, 2015
We consider a second order non-linear consensus (flocking) network of a finite population of autonomous agents and prove that the long-term behavior of its solution is towards a common value while the flock remains connected. We elevate the analysis to a collision avoidance type flocking after taking into consideration repelling forces between agents.
