In this paper we address the problem of driving a group of agents towards a consensus point when agents have a discrete-time integrator dynamics and the communication graph is time-varying. We propose two decentralized Model Predictive Control (MPC) schemes that take into account constraints on the agents' inputs and show that they guarantee consensus under(More)
In this paper we propose an application of distributed model predictive control techniques to the problem of driving a group of autonomous agents towards a consensus point, i.e. a negotiated position in their state space. Agents are assumed to be governed by discrete-time single-or double-integrator dynamics and the communication network can be directed and(More)
The kinetics of phosphate (P) during a treatment of hemofiltration or hemodiafiltration follows a simple exponential law, and P in 90 min reaches a stationary level that remains constant until the end of the treatment. The theoretical compartmental model cannot be estimated by a dialytic treatment, but a simpler diffusive model may be considered. Once the(More)
