Cooperative Control of Multi-Robot Systems using Machine Learning

Supervisor: Dr S Zhao

Project Description

Multi-robot systems have been recognized to have great potential in many application areas such as cooperative surveillance, cooperative cargo transportation, and so on. Many interesting theoretical and practical problems in multi-robot systems have attracted extensive research attention in recent years. However, most of the existing cooperative control laws are designed based on the conventional linear and nonlinear control theories.

In this project, the student will explore the roles of new methods such as machine leaning in the design of multi-robot cooperative control.

Prospective students should have a background in control engineering, robotics, or computer science. If you are interested or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact szhao@sheffield.ac.uk.
