Team-Triggered Practical Fixed-Time Consensus of Double-Integrator Agents with Uncertain Disturbance
Date of Original Version
This article addresses the team-triggered fixed-time consensus problems for a class of double-integrator agents subject to uncertain disturbance. Compared with the finite-time results, the convergence time of the fixed-time results is independent of the initial conditions. Furthermore, a novel team-triggered control (TTC) strategy is presented. This control strategy incorporates the event-triggered control (ETC) and self-triggered control (STC). The ETC and STC are proposed to achieve the fixed-time consensus of second-order multiagent systems (MASs), and no Zeno behavior occurs. The TTC scheme, derived by combining the ETC scheme and the STC scheme, is able to relax the requirement of continuous communication and thus lowering the energy consumption of communication while ensuring the performance of the system. The effectiveness of the proposed algorithms is validated by numerical simulations.
