Abstract : This paper deals with the fixed-time group consensus problem for multi-agent systems (MASs) subjected to exogenous disturbances. Firstly, two pinning control algorithms are constructed for MASs, which not only reduce the number of controllers but also achieve expected tracking consensus. Secondly, fixed-time group consensus is ensured by utilizing the algebraic graph theory, Lyapunov stability and fixed-time control technique. Finally, simulations are finally given for demonstrate the availability of the derived results.
