Speech Title: Cooperative Control of Heterogeneous Linear Multi-Agent Systems Based on Sensory Feedback
Abstract: In this talk, we investigate the cooperative control problem of heterogeneous linear multi-agent systems. A novel distributed control approach is first proposed to handle the general cooperative control problem. Then, the proposed approach is applied to solve two classes of cooperative control problems: one is the consensus problem and the other is the cooperative output regulation problem. Specifically, based on the low gain approach, the controller parameter is designed and the cooperative control problem is solved by means of Lyapunov analysis.
The proposed approach depends on relative output of the agent systems and thus is called sensory feedback controller. In comparison with existing results, this approach has its distinct features in at least two aspects. First, it can deal with general multi-input multi-output linear agent dynamics. Second, it does not require communication of internal state, which not only reduces the dimension of the controller but also greatly facilitates the implementation of the controller.
