Abstract

This article investigates the resilient output synchronization problem of a class of linear heterogeneous multiagent systems subjected to denial-of-service (DoS) attacks. Two types of control mechanisms, namely, event- and self-triggered control mechanisms, are presented so as to cut down unnecessary information transmission. Both of these two mechanisms are distributed, and thus, only local information of each agent and its neighboring agents is adopted for the event condition design. The DoS attacks are considered to be aperiodic, and the quantitative relationship between the attributes of the DoS attacks and the synchronization is also revealed. It is shown that the output synchronization can be achieved exponentially in the presence of DoS attacks under the proposed control mechanisms. The validness of the provided mechanisms is certified by a simulation example.
