Robust Consensus in Multi Robot Systems Using Wireless Signals

Security icon, disabled. A blue padlock, locked.

Securing multi-robot teams against malicious activity is crucial as these systems accelerate toward widespread societal integration. This emerging class of “physical networks” motivates research into new methods of security that exploit their physical nature. This research develops a theoretical framework for using the wireless transmissions between agents to secure vulnerable multi-agent consensus.
