Abstract : This paper inspects the consensus problem of nonlinear mixed delay multi-agent systems with random packet losses through the sampled-data control using the undirected graph without any specified leader for the other following agents. The probabilistic time varying delay is taken in the control input delay that Bernoulli distributed white sequence is engaged to formulate the random packet losses between the agents. The consensus problem can be changed over into a stabilization problem by using the Laplacian matrix which can be obtained by undirected graph. By framing a Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional with triple integral terms and implementation of the property of Kronecker product together with some well known matrix inequality techniques, a mean square consensus for mixed delay multi-agent system can be achieved. Terminally, two numerical examples are provided to illuminate the advantages of the suggested techniques.
