Abstract

An autonomous distributed control is introduced as a new control method. The effectiveness of the control is verified using a case study, where the control method is applied to the control of variable geometry trusses that has high redundancy. Through computer simulations, it is shown that various behaviors of variable geometry trusses are realized by very simple control rules of subsystems.
