Controllability refers to a situation in which a Multi-agent System may be steered from one state to another using specified rules. As a result, there is belief in achieving a given condition by explicit advances. The level of dynamism in the topology and the level of determinism in the environment are two fundamental criteria that determine multi-agent system controllability. The topology of a powerful multi-agent system changes on a regular basis, altering the connections between agents and

The leader/pioneer is a single agent that functions as an output to control other agents/members. Because the results of activities are unknown under non-deterministic situations, agents must choose new activities after observing the aftereffects of their prior actions, which causes time delay and limits agent proactivity. Controllability is often achieved in a concentrated manner in the literature, where a certain leader educates supporters how to achieve a specific goal. Controllability has different applications which incorporates managing airplane, vehicle, and robots.
