Abstract : In this paper, the adaptive finite-time consensus (FTC) control problem of second-order nonlinear multiagent systems (MASs) with input quantization and external disturbances is studied. With the help of finite time control technology, a novel distributed adaptive control protocol is constructed to achieve FTC performance for second-order nonlinear MASs by using the recursive method. The control input is quantized through a hysteresis quantizer, which reduces the communication rate of arbitrary two agents. The unknown functions are approximated by adopting the radial basis function neural networks. Under the consensus protocols and adaptive laws, it can be proved that velocity errors of arbitrary two agents reach a small region of zero in finite time as well as position errors. Finally, the effectiveness of the proposed method is illustrated via a simulation example.
