  • Provides synthesis-based methodology for team cooperation
  • Introduces a consensus-protocol optimized performance index 
  • Offers comparisons for use of proper indices in measuring team performance
  • Analyzes and predicts  performance of  previously designed consensus algorithms
  • Analyses and predicts team behavior in the presence of non-ideal considerations such as actuator anomalies and faults as well as the evolutions in the structure of the information exchange
  • Offers comparisons for use of proper indices in measuring team performance
  • Analyzes and predicts  performance of  previously designed consensus algorithms
  • Analyses and predicts team behavior in the presence of non-ideal considerations such as actuator anomalies and faults as well as the evolutions in the structure of the information exchange

Team Cooperation in a Network of Multi-Vehicle Unmanned Systems develops a framework for modeling and control of a network of multi-agent unmanned systems in a cooperative manner and with consideration of non-ideal and practical considerations. The main focus of this book is the development of “synthesis-based” algorithms rather than on conventional “analysis-based” approaches to the team cooperation, specifically the team consensus problems. The authors provide a set of modified “design-based” consensus algorithms whose optimality is verified through introduction of performance indices.
