(Un)conditional consensus emergence under feedback controls

21 Feb 2015  ·  Bongini Mattia, Fornasier Massimo, Kalise Dante ·

We study the problem of consensus emergence in multi-agent systems via external feedback controllers. We consider a set of agents interacting with dynamics given by a Cucker-Smale type of model, and study its consensus stabilization by means of centralized and decentralized control configurations... We present a characterization of consensus emergence for systems with different feedback structures, such as leader-based configurations, perturbed information feedback, and feedback computed upon spatially confined information. We characterize consensus emergence for this latter design as a parameter-dependent transition regime between self-regulation and centralized feedback stabilization. Numerical experiments illustrate the different features of the proposed designs. read more
