Containment of Higher-Order Multi-Leader Multi-Agent Systems: A Dynamic Output Approach
A new class of distributed observer-type containment protocols based on the relative output measurements of the neighboring agents is proposed, removing the impractical assumption that the observers embedded in the multiple dynamic agents have to share information with their neighbors. Expand
