COVEN stands for COoperative VEhicle Networks (click here to see the original meaning of coven – a group of witches). COVEN Lab was motivated by the increasing demand for networked systems. We work on distributed coordination and control of multiple networked systems, where collective group behavior is achieved through local interaction. We design and analyze distributed algorithms for networked systems such that they can work together as a team to accomplish certain objectives. Our lab is particularly interested in distributed control, distributed estimation, and distributed optimization subject to local information and local interaction.
