Containment control for multi-agent systems with input saturation. (English) Zbl 1397.93011
Summary: This paper investigates containment control problem for multi-agent systems with input saturation. Firstly, containment control algorithms are designed for the first-order and second-order cases with input saturation. In this framework, some sufficient conditions for the existence of such containment control are proposed, which guarantees that the position states of the followers converge to the convex hull formed by leaders. Secondly, the obtained results are further extended to the high-order case. Finally, simulation examples are given to illustrate the effectiveness of our proposed method.
