In this paper, the behaviour of a group of autonomous mobile agents under cyclic pursuit is studied. Cyclic pursuit is a simple distributed control law, in which the agent i pursues agent $i+1$ modulo $n$. The agents are assumed to be linear and identical, with no kinematic constraints on motion. It is shown here that the point of convergence of the system of agents is a function of the controller gain. The bounds on the controller gain for convergence to occur is also studied. The results generalize available results in the literature.
