Consentability and protocol design of multi-agent systems with stochastic switching topology. (English) Zbl 1162.94431
Summary: This paper studies the mean square consentability problem for a network of double-integrator agents with stochastic switching topology. It is proved that in Markov-switching topologies, the network is mean square consentable under linear consensus protocol if and only if the union of graphs in the switching topology set has globally reachable nodes. A necessary and sufficient condition of the mean square consensus is obtained. Finally, an LMI approach to the design of the consensus protocol is presented. Numerical simulations are given to illustrate the results.
