Abstract: In this paper, distributed formation is studied for a team of mobile robots including leaders and followers. Followers are able to sense the relative displacements to neighbouring followers and all of the leaders, and the leaders can be sensed by the followers. Based on such assumption of sensing, distributed formation control scheme is designed, under which both followers team and leaders team are fully independent. The followers and leaders have exchangeable roles within their own group. The leaders can have an arbitrary formation, and around the leaders, the followers need to reach a regular polygon formation with a suitable orientation. Distributed control laws and localised collision avoidance algorithms are designed for each follower, and they use only local displacements. Speed and acceleration sensors are avoided. As the leaders and the followers are independent and exchangeable, both robot teams are scalable and robust against member failures and system delays.
