Abstract:
Recent work in coordinated control of vehicle systems has shown that earlier studies in mathematics,
physics, and chemistry with models of interconnected oscillators can be used to construct controls
for coordinated vehicles. Additionally these oscillator models have been demonstrated to have direct
connection to Frenet-Serret models of dynamics for nonholonomic systems (e.g. ground vehicles,
fixed-wing aircraft, and underwater vehicles). The work presented here will address the construction
of controls for oscillator-based analysis that allow a group of vehicles to track a moving target. Fur-
ther, when these models are considered in a discrete time setting, effects of intermittent, dynamic and
asynchronous communication can be incorporated into the dynamics. Stability bounds for particular
group modes of behavior (identical heading or common point of rotation) can then be determined in
the context of limited communication. Results are demonstrated in simulation with applications drawn
