This project developed fundamental, new tools and techniques for how tostructure the coordination and control strategies in teams of mobile robots. In particular, two general thrust areas were pursued, focusing on human-swarm interactions and pursuit-evasion-based motion control strategies. Although interesting in their own rights, the unifying theme behind these two different thrusts is the notion of intent, where the first thrust, which can be thought of as evolving at a higher level of abstraction, focused on how user intent can be injected into a network of mobile agents in a fundamentally sound manner. The second thrust, in turn, focused on how the intent can be hidden in order to produce effective, deception-based coordination and pursuit strategies.
