Abstract

The paper addresses consensus under nonlinear couplings and bounded delays for multi-agent systems, where the agents have the single-integrator dynamics. The network topology is undirected and may alter as time progresses. The couplings are uncertain and satisfy a conventional sector condition with known sector slopes. The delays are uncertain, time-varying and obey known upper bounds. The network satisfies a symmetry condition that resembles the,Newton's Third Law. Explicit analytical conditions for the robust consensus are offered that employ only the known upper bounds for the delays and the sector slopes. (C) 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
