As robotic swarm systems emerge, it is increasingly important to provide strong guarantees on energy consumption and safety to maximize system performance. One approach to achieve these guarantees is through constraint-driven control, where agents seek to minimize energy consumption subject to a set of safety and task constraints. In this paper, we provide a sufficient and necessary condition for an energy-minimizing agent with integrator dynamics to have a continuous control input at the transition between unconstrained and constrained trajectories. In addition, we present and analyze barycentric motion and collision avoidance constraints to be used in constraint-driven control of swarms.
