CONTROL STRATEGY FOR SYMMETRIC CIRCULAR FORMATIONS OF MOBILE AGENTS WITH COLLISION AVOIDANCE
Collective motion is a promising field that studies how local interactions lead groups of individuals to global behaviors. Biologists try to understand how those subjects interplay in nature, and engineers are concerned with the application of interaction strategies to mobile vehicles, satellites, robots, etc. This paper introduces a collision avoidance mechanism to a model of particles with phase-coupled oscillators dynamics for symmetric circular formations. The mobile agents must establish the formation without colliding with each other.
