Abstract: This dissertation concerns the cooperative control of robotic systems composed of multiple planar nonholonomic vehicles. Specifically, the coordination strategies are presented for groups of mobile robots to delineate the motion edicts for each vehicle of the swarm to accomplish missions in a cooperative way. The main contribution of the thesis can be found in a Leader-follower approach, to control multi-robot systems while achieving different formation control missions.
