Abstract

This paper considers the problem on formation tracking control of second-order multi-agent systems with communication time-varying delay. Sufficient conditions on the directed interaction topology and existence of the feedback gains to ensure the desired control are presented. Through choosing two augmented Lyapunov-Krasovskii functionals and using some novel Wirtinger-based integral inequalities, the previously ignored information can be reconsidered and the application area of derived results can be greatly extended. Moreover, a novel constructive technique is given to compute out the controller gains by resorting to solving the achieved linear matrix inequalities. Finally, a numerical example with comparisons and simulations is provided to illustrate the obtained results.
