ENGS 114: Networked Multi-Agent Systems

Offered

Not offered 2013-2014

Prerequisites

ENGS 26, MATH 23, or equivalents plus familiarity with MATLAB

Design and analysis of networked systems comprised of interacting dynamic agents will be considered. Inspired by the cohesive behavior of flocks of birds, we design self-organizing engineering systems that mimic a sense of coordinated motion and the capability of collaborative information processing similar to flocks of birds. Examples include multi-robot networks, social networks, sensor networks, and swarms. The course combines concepts in control theory, graph theory, and complex systems in a unified framework.
