Networking and Decentralized Control in Layered Networks: a Theoretical Study and Test-bed Development

Networking and Decentralized Control in Layered Networks: a Theoretical Study and Test-bed Development

Date: December 2014
Creator: Sheth, Vardhman Jayeshkumar
Description: Layered structures are commonly used in communication systems, but their roles in decentralized control are not understood well. In the first part of this thesis, a theoretical study of consensus (a typical decentralized control task) in layered structures is conducted. The unique graph topology approach permits explicit characterization of consensus performance based on simple graphical characteristics of MLMG structures. In the second part of this thesis, a generic LEGO test-bed to mimic multi-domain communication with layered structures is described. A search-and-rescue scenario is implemented to demonstrate the use of the test-bed.
