We investigate optimal control of systems of particles on matrix Lie groups coupled through graphs of interaction, and characterize the limit of strong coupling. Following Brockett, we use an enlargement approach to obtain a convenient form of the optimal controls. In the setting of drift-free particle dynamics, the coupling terms in the cost functionals lead to a novel class of problems in subriemannian geometry of product Lie groups.
