Cooperative control


A control method that runs multiple equipment collaboratively to perform tasks effectively.

The goal of cooperative control can be classified into control for the avoidance of competition, and control for the execution of work. For example, research into cooperative control for the avoidance of competition includes path-planning algorithms and optimization of the behavior of groups of microrobots. Research into cooperative control for task execution includes grasping objects by multiple micro-manipulators and performing actions using multiple actuators.
