It has been witnessed that swarm systems are superior to individual agents in performing complicated tasks. In recent years, new results in some branches of control for swarm systems have developed and investigated with respect to various objectives and scenarios. This survey is to take a glimpse into some newly developed control techniques for swarm systems, especially those presented after 2013. The covered topics include some up-to-date progress in the areas of consensus, formation, flocking, containment, optimal coverage/mission planning, and sensor networks. Contributions and connections of the mentioned references are discussed briefly. Based on the new results in control of swarm systems, some possible new future research topics are suggested.
(Color online) Interception by using multi-UAVs system.
(Color online) State trajectories and event instants.
(Color online) Force analogy of resilient estimation. The equilibrium point where the sum force is zero should be bounded.
