Abstract

Robot formation control technology has a certain practical significance and application value. efficient and stable formation control is the theoretical basis and technical key to perform complex tasks. Firstly, the basic idea of formation control is introduced, and then several formation control methods such as following the leader method, behavior based method, virtual structure method and artificial potential field method are introduced; This paper summarizes the research achievements of robot formation control in recent 20 years at home and abroad. Finally, the future research direction of formation control is pointed out.
