de Groot, Oscar (author)
In this work we consider the problem of cooperative formation control between heterogeneous agents when time-varying delays and/or packet loss are present. Specifically, we introduce a control law for nonlinear fully actuated mechanical agents that separates the cooperative coordinates from the local coordinates, which removes the necessity for...

Formation flying is a phenomenon observed very often in the natural world, e.g. birds flying in a flock. The past decade has given a lot of emphasis on the research for the control of autonomous Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) of the fixed-wing kind, in an effort to emulate the behavior of natural flocks. Emulating this behavior requires the...

UnmannedAerial Vehicles(UAVs) have multi-domain applications and fixed-wing UAVs are a widely used class. There is ongoing research on topics in view to optimize the control and guidance of UAVs. This work explores the design, implementation and Software-in-the-Loop validation of an autopilot using adaptive guidance laws with emphasis on...

Decentralized control and estimation are both active research areas in the field of systems and control. A new approach to these topics utilizes graph theory to characterize inter-agent communication as a graph that, in this thesis, can have time-varying topology. This approach has been named "network-decentralized" and the use of network...

The Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) is a European mission for the detection of gravitational waves in space set to be launched in 2034. The mission will see the deployment of 3 spacecraft in heliocentric orbit keeping a triangular formation with side length of 2.5 million km. Laser beams are exchanged between the spacecraft by means of...

Quadrotor UAV's have become extremely popular over the last decade, as they combine great agility with mechanic simplicity. For tasks such as area surveillance or maintaining a communication network, the deployment of multi-agent systems is required. In these scenarios, it often is necessary for the robot teams to navigate in formation while...

The steady increase in volume of goods to be transported over land and water has necessitated the development of efficient and alternative methods of transportation. In current practices considerable amount of transportation delay is caused due to switching between different modes of transportation resulting in economic losses. Another...
