Special Issue on Coordinated control of multiple autonomous vehicles

The paradigm of autonomous vehicles’ cooperative control is the challenge frontier for new control system application domains, and as a research area it has experienced a considerable increase in activity in recent years. The military application of autonomous vehicles systems or multiple unmanned vehicles is primarily targeted; however much of the material is relevant to a broader range of multi-agent systems including cooperative robotics, distributed computing, sensor networks and data network congestion control. The Special Issue is aimed at the Cooperative control of multiple vehicles and its application on all kinds of fields.

Cooperative control of multiple vehicles, autonomous vehicles, like ground vehicles, spacecrafts, underwater unmanned vehicles, wireless sensor network, et al.
Finite-time formation control algorithms, distributed coordinated control, consensus algorithms, and so on.
