Abstract : This paper focuses on the adaptive event-triggered consensus control problem for a class of stochastic nonlinear multi-agent systems with unknown nonlinear control directions and external disturbances. The heterogeneous nonlinear dynamics and non-identical unknown control directions are discussed for different agents. The application of the event-triggered mechanism can effectively decrease the update frequency of the controller, and unknown nonlinear dynamics are solved by using fuzzy logic systems. Under the action of the designed distributed controller, all signals of this stochastic multi-agent systems can reach semi-globally uniformly ultimately bounded (SGUUB) in mean square. Furthermore, Zeno behavior can be ruled out by the existence of positive inter-event intervals. Finally, a simulation example is presented to verify the feasibility of the algorithm.
