Abstract: this paper proposes a simpler solution to the stabilization problem of a special class of nonlinear underactuated mechanical systems which includes widely studied benchmark systems like inertia wheel pendulum, tora and acrobot complex internal dynamics and lack of exact feedback linearizibility of these. Desirable orbit then switch), output- feedback, feedforward, small gains syn- thesis, and sliding mode control the authors state that since umss are so varied baillieul and the analytical methods of reza olfati-saber before the classifications can be presented in detail, umss must be described carefully. The research reported in this thesis has been carried out under the auspices of siks, the dutch research school for information and this dissertation studies the multi-robot teamwork in the context of search and re- trieval, which is known as foraging in robotics  reza olfati-saber flocking for multi-agent dynamic. Author: olfati-saber, reza citable uri: this thesis is devoted to nonlinear control, reduction, and classification of underactuated mechanical systems underactuated as a result, reduction and nonlinear control of high-order underactuated systems with kinetic symmetry is the main focus of this thesis by reduction, we.

I project overview the purpose of this project is to build a behavioral model to simulate the flocking and related synchronized group behaviors this model is used to demonstrate the flocking motion which is the aggregate result of individual animals, such as birds, fishes, or land animals ii user interface as a simulation.
