ECE Faculty Speak at Workshop on Swarming Behavior
Professor Eyad Abed (ECE/ISR), Professor John S. Baras (ECE/ISR), Professor P.S. Krishnaprasad (ECE/ISR), and Assistant Research Scientist Eric Justh (ISR) were featured speakers at the Workshop on Swarming in Natural and Engineered Systems this month.
The workshop brought together experts in artificial intelligence, control theory, robotics, systems engineering and biology to better understand swarming behaviors in nature and applications of biologically-inspired models of swarm behaviors to large networked groups of autonomous vehicles.
Dr. Abed spoke on Formation Control with Virtual Leaders and Reduced Communications, while Dr. Baras spoke on Swarm Collaborative Intelligence: From Networked Control to Trust in MANET. Dr. Justh and Dr. Krishnaprasad's topic was Spatial Patterns in Cooperation and Conflict.
