Abstract: First of all, the definition and characteristics of multi-agent technology is introduced. By analyzing the literature on application of multi-agent technology at home and abroad, the basic research of multi-agent system is analyzed and the technical development of the direction of multi-agent consensus and control are combed. Then, this article chooses the two fields of robot control and wireless sensor networks to focus on the application changes and the latest achievements of multi-agent technology in practical engineering in recent years. Finally, this paper summarizes main problems to be solved in engineering application, and points out the research direction of future multi-agent system application.

Key words: distributed artificial intelligence, multi-agent system, cooperative control, consensus
