Group control


A control method that organizes multiple autonomous units to accomplish a certain task as a group.

In group control, multiple units, each of which has relatively simple function and can perform limited work on its own, can perform intelligent operation by organizing them into a group. Group control is important especially in control of multiple micromachines. Examples of group control systems on an experimental basis are the cell structure robot system that consists of multiple simple-function autonomous robots called as cells and can be reconstructed dynamically.
