The aim of this project is to come up with new energy-efficient design methodologies and novel control strategies for robotic sensor networks. A passivity-based approach using the port-Hamiltonian modelling framework is aimed at. The main application in mind is the coordination of a group of robots used for dike inspection. Other applications might arise from the field of formation control of satellites.
