We will review several recent results concerned with the maintenance of formations of mobile autonomous agents {eg robots} based on the idea of a rigid framework. We will talk briefly about certain classes of “directed” formations for which there is a moderately complete methodology. We then turn to “undirected” formations which is the main focus of this presentation.

Topological maps have been used in the mobile robot community, starting with Ben Kuipers insightful work on distinctive places and edges that connected them. This map was a variation of the Voronoi diagram, which I use in my work to robot exploration. In this talk, I will put forward a definition of a topological map and show why the Voronoi diagram is a good topological map. Sadly, this is the only example of a good topological map that I can find, and I will talk about some attempts to make good topological maps in higher dimensional spaces.
