A General Auxiliary Controller for Multi-agent Flocking

by   Jinfan Zhou, et al.
Shandong University

We aim to improve the performance of multi-agent flocking behavior by quantifying the structural significance of each agent. We designed a confidence score(ConfScore) to measure the spatial significance of each agent. The score will be used by an auxiliary controller to refine the velocity of agents. The agents will be enforced to follow the motion of the leader agents whose ConfScores are high. We demonstrate the efficacy of the auxiliary controller by applying it to several existing algorithms including learning-based and non-learning-based methods. Furthermore, we examined how the auxiliary controller can help improve the performance under different settings of communication radius, number of agents and maximum initial velocity.
