Abstract : This paper investigates the distributed consensus problem for heterogeneous multi-agent systems via event-triggered scheme. To alleviate the communication burden, a distributed event-triggered consensus algorithm using an open-loo estimate and neighboring information is proposed. In the proposed event-triggered scheme, the control input of each agent is dependent on the estimate and information at discrete instants. Firstly, the novel event-triggered consensus algorithm is proposed for fixed topology, which involves the discrete communication between neighboring agents. Then, for the switching topology, the triggering condition is proposed by virtue of a topology-dependent dwell time approach. Further, the corresponding consensus procedures are given. Finally, the effectiveness of the proposed scheme is illustrated by numerical results.
