    Abstract

    Packet loss is a serious issue in wireless consensus networks, as even few failures might prevent a network to converge to the correct value. However, it is possible to compensate for the errors caused by packet collisions, by modifying the updating weights. Such a modification compensates for the loss of information in an unreliable network, but results in a reduced convergence speed. In this paper, we propose a faster method — based on a suitable gain in the consensus dynamics — to solve the unreliable average consensus problem. We find a sufficient condition for the gain to preserve stability of the network. Simulations are used to discuss the choice of the gain, and to compare our method with the literature.
