Abstract

In this paper, we study a consensus problem of continuous time multi-agent system. Multi-agent system has communication network. Each agent gets information of neighbors to achieve consensus. It is assumed that there are delays in communication network. The communication delays are different every communication channels and time-dependent. Furthermore, it is assumed that there are switching topologies and feed-back gains are time variable. Under these assumptions, we show that the entire system is stable. The stability is shown by Lyapunov theorem.
