报告题目：Fault-Tolerant Formation Tracking of Heterogeneous Nonlinear Multi-Agent Systems with Time-Varying Actuator Faults
Abstract: Formation tracking of networked multi-agent systems has captured much attention in the control and engineering communities. The sensors, actuators and other components in multi-agent systems may suffer from various faults that result in the performance degradation or even instability. In thiswork, the problem setting not only enhances the investigated problem’s practical relevance and at the same time, it poses nontrivial design challenges of distributed control algorithms and convergence analysis. To solve this issue, a novel distributed control algorithm is developed by incorporating an estimation-based control framework together with Nussbaum gain methods to guarantee asymptotic cooperative formation tracking of networked systems under unknown and dynamic faults.
