© 2007 EUCA.In this study, we analyze formation control (formation of a geometrical shape) of an autonomous multi-robot system with the use of artificial potential functions and Newton's iteration. The method is independent of the low-level vehicle dynamics of the robots and therefore it can be applied to different type of robots. We also perform numerical simulations to examine the performance of the method.
