报告人: Hamid Reza Karimi 教授 （Politecnico di Milano）
内容摘要： Recently, the problem of distributed cooperative control (filter) design for multiagent systems has received increasing attentions due to its advantages, compared with the traditional centralized systems, including more flexibility, decentralization, stronger robustness. Some research directions in this area address the following problems: consensus, distributed tracking, optimal tracking, distributed formation control, distributed optimization, containment control and flocking, for instance. The objective of this talk is to present some challenges and recent results on distributed cooperative control systems or distributed model predictive control of multiagent systems for consensus, e.g. robotics, with a focus on advanced controller design strategy developments under information constraints. The talk will be concluded with some concluding remarks on both technical and practical aspects of distributed control systems for consensus problems of multiagent systems.
