Abstract : "This work reports a radial basis Artificial Neural Network controller that solves the leader-follower and
leaderless pose (position and orientation) consensus problems, in the Special Euclidean space of dimension three
(SE(3)), in robot networks composed of heterogeneous (kinematically and dynamically different) and uncertain
robots. The proposed approach employs, the singularity-free, unit-quaternions to represent the orientation of the
end-effectors in the SE(3). The performance of the proposed controller is illustrated via simulations with a five
heterogeneous robot network."
