More Information
  • A new kind of group coordination control problem-group hybrid coordination control is investigated in this paper. The group hybrid coordination control means that in a whole multi-agent system (MAS) that consists of two subgroups with communications between them, agents in the two subgroups achieve consensus and containment, respectively. For MASs with both time-delays and additive noises, two group control protocols are proposed to solve this problem for the containment-oriented case and consensus-oriented case, respectively. By developing a new analysis idea, some sufficient conditions and necessary conditions related to the communication intensity between the two subgroups are obtained for the following two types of group hybrid coordination behavior: 1) Agents in one subgroup and in another subgroup achieve weak consensus and containment, respectively; 2) Agents in one subgroup and in another subgroup achieve strong consensus and containment, respectively. It is revealed that the decay of the communication impact between the two subgroups is necessary for the consensus-oriented case. Finally, the validity of the group control results is verified by several simulation examples.
