Network Synchronization


Various modern applications require synchronization between networked agents, including robotic manipulators, sensor arrays, small satellites and generators. Synchronization refers to the mutual state tracking between two or more networked agents. Compared to general consensus, synchronization can emphasize similarity in state while tracking a desired trajectory.
