Formation stabilization of underwater mobile sensing networks

Formation control is essential for an underwater mobile sensing network (UMSN), an ad hoc network which wirelessly connects underwater vehicles of sensing and/or observing types via acoustic communications, to fulfill mobile sensing tasks. The problem of formation stabilization for an UMSN with varying communication topology is studied in this paper. Sufficient condition of formation stability is proposed in terms of stability analysis of linear time varying system and spectrum analysis of graph Laplacian of communication topology. Moreover, a design procedure for synthesis of formation controller is given.
