Description

In this paper we present a passivity based control for spacecraft formation flying. We derive both attitude and position control. The controls do not require velocity information. They only require information about the position and attitude of the given robot and two of its neighbors. Furthermore, our approach has the advantage that we provide convergence results and establish bounds on the formation error.

Spacecraft Formation Flying Via Dynamic Compensation

They only require information about the position and attitude of the given robot and two of its neighbors.
