Robust distributed predictive control of waterborne AGVs - a cooperative and cost-effective approach


"Waterborne Autonomous Guided Vessels (waterborne AGVs) moving over open waters experience environmental uncertainties. This paper proposes a novel cost-effective robust distributed control approach for waterborne AGVs. The overall system is uncertain and has independent subsystem dynamics but coupling objectives and state constraints. Waterborne AGVs determine their actions in a parallel way, whil..." [More...]
