We investigate the robustness of various cooperative control schemes with respect to heterogeneous communication delays. The presented results provide delay-dependent and delay-independent conditions that guarantee consensus, rendezvous, flocking, and synchronization in different classes of multi-agent systems (MAS). All conditions are scalable to arbitrarily large multi-agent systems with heterogeneous communication delays. The results are applied to several examples and simulations illustrate the findings.
Ulrich Münz received his MSc in electrical engineering and information technology (Dipl.-Ing.) from the University of Stuttgart, Germany, and his MSc in telecommunications (Ingeniero de Telecomunicación) from the Polytechnic University of Madrid (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid), Spain, both in 2005. In September 2005, he joined the Institute for Systems Theory and Automatic Control at the University of Stuttgart, Germany, where he is currently a research and teaching assistant. His research interests include the analysis and design of cooperating multi-agent systems with communication delays, the analysis and design of time-delay systems in general, as well as fault diagnosis.
