This paper presents a distributed formation control for multi-robot dynamic systems with external disturbances and system uncertainties. First from the Lagrangian analysis, the dynamic model of a wheeled mobile robot can be derived. Then the robust distributed formation controller is proposed based on sliding mode control, consensus algorithm, and graph theory. In this study, the robust stability of the closed-loop system is guaranteed by the Lyapunov stability theorem. From simulation results, the proposed approach provides better formation responses compared to consensus algorithm.
