Decentralized Control Barrier Functions for Coupled Multi-Agent Systems under Signal Temporal Logic Tasks

Lars Lindemann, Dimos V. Dimarogonas

We study the problem of controlling multi-agent systems under a set of signal temporal logic tasks. Signal temporal logic is a formalism that is used to express time and space constraints for dynamical systems. Recent methods to solve the control synthesis problem for single-agent systems under signal temporal logic tasks are, however, subject to a high computational complexity. Methods for multi-agent systems scale at least linearly with the number of agents and induce even higher computational burdens. We propose a computationally-efficient control strategy to solve the multi-agent control synthesis problem that results in a robust satisfaction of a set of signal temporal logic tasks. In particular, a decentralized feedback control law is proposed that is based on time-varying control barrier functions. The obtained control law is discontinuous and formal guarantees are provided by nonsmooth analysis. Simulations show the efficacy of the presented method.
