Positive Consensus for Heterogeneous Multi-agent Systems

  title={Positive Consensus for Heterogeneous Multi-agent Systems},
  author={Ruonan Li and Yutao Tang and Shurong Li},
: In this paper, we consider a positive consensus problem for some high-order linear multi-agent systems. Compared with existing consensus results, the most distinct feature of the formulated problem is that the state variables of all heterogeneous agents are confined to the positive orthant. To solve this problem, we first present some auxiliary multi-agent systems as positive local reference generators and then incorporate the reference generator into some applicable decentralized tracking…

Positive Consensus of Directed Multi-agent Systems using Dynamic Output-feedback Control

Using positive systems theory and graph theory, a convex programming algorithm is developed to design appropriate protocols such that the multi-agent system is able to reach consensus with its state trajectory always remaining in the non-negative orthant.
