Abstract

In this paper we investigate the problem of containing an outbreak using multiple cooperative agents. We present a general mathematical description of outbreak dynamics, which models the behaviour of many real-world situations including outbreaks of epidemic diseases, wild fires, riots, insect spreads, etc. Based on the outbreak dynamics we provide conditions on the positions of the control agents that guarantee that an outbreak can be contained before a deadline. A coverage control law that maximizes the area in which agents are able to contain a future unknown outbreak is deduced from these conditions. Simulation results illustrate the potential of the approach.
