Recent years have witnessed an increasing number of feedback applications in mobile sensor networks, cooperative robotics, and vehicle formations. An essential feature of these applications is using local feedback to achieve a prescribed group behavior. Group coordination and formation control designs are utilized in a wide range of applications including autonomous sampling networks, schooling and flocking in biological organisms, optimized sensor coverage, distributed computing, drag reduction, under-way replenishment operations, safety in adversarial environments, etc.We first reviewed a unifying passivity framework for the group agreement problem and extended it to a class of ... further study dynamic field distributions for tracking a slowly varying/moving maxima which is an important problem in practice.
