This paper studies the consensus problem of linear multi-agent systems via observer-based event-triggered control. Two novel observer-based event-triggered control schemes, one centralized and the other distributed, are developed. It is shown that under the proposed control protocols, consensus can be reached if the underlying communication graph of the MAS is connected. An example is finally presented to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed control methods. © 1982-2012 IEEE.
