Scale Free Bounds on the Amplification of Disturbances in Mass Chains

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

We give a method for designing a mechanical impedance to suppress the propagation of disturbances along a chain of masses. The key feature of our method is that it is scale free. This means that it can be used to give a single, fixed, design, with provable performance guarantees in mass chains of any length. We illustrate the approach by designing a bidirectional control law in a vehicle platoon in a manner that is independent of the number of vehicles in the platoon.
