Abstract

This study focuses on the secure consensus problem for heterogeneous multi-agent systems composed of first- and second-order agents. First, we show that the network robustness can be significantly improved by setting a subset of nodes as trusted nodes. Then, we propose a secure consensus algorithm for heterogeneous systems with trusted nodes. The sufficient conditions for the convergence of the normal agents' states to a common value under adversarial nodes are presented. Finally, certain numerical examples are provided to illustrate the effectiveness of the theoretical results.
