These videos show a human operator using a haptic device to teleoperate a group of 4 UAVs by controlling the velocity of only one leader.
In the video UAVs have limited-range and line-of-sight communication and perception. This defines an "interaction graph" whose topology can vary over time depending on the particular state of the system.
The next video shows an implementation of the teleoperation framework proposed in .
