Abstract

Based on Lyapunov theory, this research demonstrates the stability of the sliding surface in the consensus problem of multi-agent systems. Each agent in this system is represented by the dynamically uncertain robot, unstructured disturbances, and nonlinear friction, especially when the dynamic function of agent is unknown. All system states use neural network online weight tuning algorithms to compensate for the disturbance and uncertainty. Each agent in the system has a different position, and their trajectory approach to the same target is from each distinct orientation. In this research, we analyze the design of the sliding surface for this model and demonstrate which type of sliding surface is the best for the consensus problem. Lastly, simulation results are presented to certify the correctness and the effectiveness of the proposed control method. View Full-Text
