This paper investigates the consensus problems for networks of dynamic agents. The agent dynamics is adopted as a typical point mass model based on the Newton’s law. The average-consensus problem is proposed for such class of networks, which includes two aspects, the agreement of the states of the agents, and the convergence to zero of the speeds of the(More)
An iterative approach is proposed to model networked control systems (NCSs) with arbitrary but finite data packet dropout as switched linear systems. This enables us to apply the rich theory of switched systems to analyzing such NCSs. Sufficient conditions are presented on the stability and stabilization of NCSs with packet dropout and network delays.(More)
In this paper, consensus problems of continuoustime networked multi-agent systems via sampled control are investigated. The sampled control protocols are induced from continuous-time linear consensus protocol by using periodic sampling technology and zero-order hold circuit. Two cases are considered: 1) networks without sampling delay; 2) networks with(More)
The problem of stabilization of networked control systems (NCSs) with data packet dropout is studied. Sufficient conditions are presented on the stability and stabilization of the NCSs with packet dropout. The novelty of this work lies in that NCSs with arbitrary but finite data packet dropout are modelled as switched linear systems, and this enables us to(More)
This paper presents a framework for controlling groups of autonomous mobile robots to achieve predetermined formations based on leader-following approach. A three-level hybrid control architecture is proposed to implement both centralized and decentralized cooperative control. Under such architecture, we decompose the global-level formation control problem(More)
