We investigate consensus problem for third-order multiagent dynamical systems in directed graph. Necessary and sufficient conditions to consensus of third-order multiagent systems have been established under three different protocols. Compared with existing results, we focus on the relationship between the scaling strengths and the eigenvalues of the involved Laplacian matrix, which guarantees consensus of third-order multiagent systems. Finally, some simulation examples are given to illustrate the theoretical results.
