Fault tolerant control of coordinated motion of heterogeneous robots


This proposal deals with the coordination of heterogeneous robots based on unmanned helicopters and mobile robots. The robots are controlled to follow a leader. Decentralized recursive robust regulators will be designed to maintain the robots in formation. It will be developed a fault tolerant control system based on linear Markovian jump linear systems to guarantee the stability when one or more robots get out of the formation. A Vicon cameras system will be used to perform the localization of the robots. This system will useful for other projects that have been developed in Center for Robotics created at USP São Carlos in the last year.Basic research related with coordination of heterogenous robots is included in a complex technological context. For civil and military applications, autonomous helicopters, cars, and aircrafts will be used in diverse appllications. (AU)
