Special Issue Introduction

The past few decades have witnessed the significant development of intelligent unmanned autonomous systems, which would be widely used in key military and civilian fields, such as reconnaissance and rescue missions, environmental protection and surveillance. Most recently, various techniques have been developed to address the technical challenges in these systems. Game theory on cooperation and competition among multiple decision-making agents provides an effective framework to solve the control-related problems and further improve system performances, such as optimality, robustness, and safety in complex systems. However, the stability performance is the most important, which is seldom considered in the existing results due to the complexity and unfeasibility of the concerned problems with uncertainties and unknown disturbances. Therefore, it is necessary to combine game theory methods and techniques with optimize control to achieve better system performance. This special issue focuses on promoting the development of collaborative optimization technologies for intelligent unmanned autonomous systems within the framework of game theory. The key motivation behind this is to provide an opportunity for scientists, engineers, and practitioners to publish their latest theoretical and technological achievements with original ideas and new approaches on optimization and control of intelligent unmanned autonomous systems with complex dynamics under complicated environmental constraints, such as cooperative control, game optimization, formation, and task allocation of autonomous unmanned systems. Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

● Coordination of multi-agent systems
● Autonomous driving
● Optimization of complex dynamic systems
● Cluster Game of multi-agent system
● Distribution Location for autonomous unmanned systems
● Formation control of heterogeneous multiple unmanned systems
● Task allocation and decision planning of multi-robotic system
● Cyber security of multi-intelligent unmanned system
