Autonomous distributed control


A control method that makes distributed individual work cooperate autonomously without any external control.

Even though the individual works are simple, they function cooperatively in combination and perform complex work. Autonomous distributed control is particularly suitable for micromachine control. Following is a typical example. In a coordinated handling system by multiple autonomous robots, the object's aimed path is given only to the leader robot, and the other robots, called as followers, estimate the motion of the leader by observing the object's motion and controlling themselves individually.
