J. Dyn. Sys., Meas., Control 136(4), 044504 (Apr 28, 2014) (5 pages) Paper No: DS-13-1257; doi: 10.1115/1.4026875 History: Received July 01, 2013; Revised February 03, 2014

This paper investigates a kind of consensus problem in multi-agent systems, revises an existing control input for consensus by dynamic quantizers, and also gives a visible distributed event-triggered rule to update the parameters for dynamic quantizers. In other words, distributed event-triggered dynamic quantizers are firstly proposed and employed when designing a consensus strategy for multi-agent systems by this paper. Meanwhile, the overall steps of the control strategy are included. The numerical results come to agreement with the theoretical analysis, and shows that the proposed strategy can get faster convergence speed in comparison with an existing one.
