Talk Abstract: In this talk, preliminary results on the problem of collision avoidance and path planning are presented. Based on basic concepts from analysis of polynomials on the complex plane, algorithms are developed which enable several vehicles to simultaneously converge to the desired positions. These algorithms are decentralized, require only a limited exchange of information between the vehicles and provide adaptive paths which avoid collisions with both static and moving objects. A small discussion will also be presented on the basic

SPEAKER’S BIO: Constantino M.Lagoa (M '98) got his B.S. and M.Sc. degrees from the Instituto Superior T\'ecnico, Technical University of Lisbon, Portugal in 1991 and 1994 respectively and his Ph.D. degree from the University of Wisconsin at Madison in 1998. He joined the Electrical Engineering Department of The Pennsylvania State University in August 1998, where he currently holds the position of Associate Professor. He has a wide range of research interests including robust control, controller design under risk specifications, control of computer networks and discrete event dynamical systems. In 2000 Dr. Lagoa received the NSF CAREER award for his proposal on system design under risk constraints....
