Multi-agent control of high redundancy actuation [conference paper]

The High Redundancy Actuator (HRA) project investigates the use of a relatively high number of small actuation elements, assembled in series and parallel in order to form a single actuator which has intrinsic fault tolerance. Both passive and active methods of control are planned for use with the HRA. This paper presents progress towards a multiple model control scheme for the HRA applied through the framework of multi-agent control.
