Abstract : "Asynchronous switching differing from asynchronous consensus may hinder the system to reach a consensus.
This receives very limited attention, especially when the multi-agent systems have a controller fault. In
order to analyze the consensus in this situation, this paper studies the consensus of the second-order multi-agent
systems under asynchronous switching with a controller fault. We convert the consensus problems under asynchronous
switching into stability problems and obtain important results for consensus with the aid of linear matrix
inequalities. An example is given to illustrate the effect of asynchronous switching on the consensus, and to validate
the analytical results in this paper."
