Abstract

top
As embedded microprocessors are applied widerly to multi-agent systems, control scheduling and time-delay problems arose in the case of limited energy and computational ability. It has been shown that the event-triggered actuation strategy is an effective methodology for designing distributed control of multi-agent systems with limited computational resources. In this paper, a tracking control problem of leader-follower multi-agent systems with/without communication delays is formulated and a distributed dynamic tracking control is designed by employing event-triggered technique. Then, the input-to-state stability of the closed-loop multi-agent system with directed interconnections is analyzed. Finally, a numerical example is given to validate the proposed control.
