Spatial distribution results for efficient multi-agent navigation

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Coordinated navigation to a single perfectly known target by multiple cooperating sensor-equipped agents in a partially known static environment is investigated. Original results on the spatial distribution of the agents under an optimal policy are derived using dynamic programming and neurodynamic programming techniques. Practical implications are discussed.
