Global analysis of multi-agent systems based on vicsek's model

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In this technical note, under widely used joint connectivity assumptions, some necessary and/or sufficient conditions for the heading consensus of autonomous multi-agent systems described by Vicsek's model are proposed. Further, more general nonaveraging protocols are studied for which necessary and/or sufficient conditions for the consensus are also given.
