Broadcast Control (BC) is a new paradigm for the control of multi-agent systems. BC is advantageous because it greatly decreases the communication volume of the whole system. This thesis proposed enhancements to the existing BC schemes. The enhanced BC schemes are twofold; Multi-step BC (MBC) and Receding Horizon based BC (RHBC). The proposed enhanced schemes prove to be the best performing BC schemes to date for the coverage task of multi-agent systems that deal with deploying physical agents to optimise surveillance of a domain of interest.
