These videos show the potentiality of a new decentralized control that ensures the maintenance of a novel concept of connectivity. The generalized connectivity concept is able to embed several constraints, such as obstacle and inter-robot collision avoidance, limited visibility, limited range, and many other both local and global group objectives.
