Abstract : In this paper, consensus problem is studied for the first-order nonlinear multi-agent systems under directed topology, and a novel event-triggered consensus protocol is proposed. Different from the existing results with general zero-order hold, the first-order hold is adopted to construct the event-triggered control signal so as to reduce the triggering rate. By using Lyapunov stability method and matrix theory, a sufficient consensus condition is derived for the agents to reach the asymptotic consensus, and Zeno-behavior can be avoided. Finally, a numerical example is presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of our proposed protocol.
