Abstract : "In this paper, the consensus tracking problem of second order multi-agent systems with disturbance
is studied under heterogenous position and velocity topologies. The cases that the disturbances are generated
from linear exosystems and nonlinear exosystems are considered, respectively. For achieving consensus, linear
disturbance observer and dynamic-gain-based nonlinear disturbance observer using only the velocity information
of the agents are proposed, and then control protocols and sufficient conditions for solving the consensus problem
are given. Finally, simulation examples are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed disturbance
observers and control protocols."
