This paper studies the problem of dynamically covering a
given region D in R2
using a set of N mobile sensor agents.
The coverage goal is to sample each point in the mission
domain to a desired preset level. It is crucial in many dy
namic coverage missions that the vehicles retain communi
cation connectivity to guarantee reliable wireless commu
nication links between neighboring agents, while avoiding
the risk of collisions. In this paper, dynamic coverage con
trol strategies developed by the author in previous publi
cations are modiﬁed to guarantee collision avoidance and
network connectivity. Several numerical examples are pro
vided to illustrate the main ideas.
