This paper addresses the leader tracking control problem for heterogeneous uncertain nonlinear multi-agent systems sharing information via a communication network, modeled as a directed graph.

Numerical simulations, involving both the synchronization control problem for nonlinear harmonic oscillators and the practical engineering problem of the cooperative driving for autonomous connected vehicles, confirm the theoretical derivation and disclose the capability of the proposed strategy in achieving the control objective.

Abstract

This paper addresses the leader tracking control problem for heterogeneous uncertain nonlinear multi-agent systems sharing information via a communication network, modeled as a directed graph. To solve the problem, we propose a novel distributed PID-like control strategy which, enhanced with a Lyapunov-based adaption mechanism for the control parameters, is able to counteract the uncertainties acting on the agents dynamics. The stability analysis analytically proves the effectiveness of the proposed PID protocol in ensuring the leader-tracking as well as the boundedness of the adaptive control gains. Numerical simulations, involving both the synchronization control problem for nonlinear harmonic oscillators and the practical engineering problem of the cooperative driving for autonomous connected vehicles, confirm the theoretical derivation and disclose the capability of the proposed strategy in achieving the control objective.
