This paper is aimed at studying the consensus of linear multi-agent systems subject to actuator saturation. In order to solve the consensus problem, a new family of scheduled low-and-high-gain decentralized control laws are designed, provided that the dynamics of each agent is asymptotically null controllable with bounded controls, and such control laws rely on the asymptotic property of a class of parametric algebraic Ricatti equations. It is shown that the consensus of the systems with connected and fixed topology can be achieved semi-globally asymptotically via the local error low-and-high-gain feedback. An illustrative example with simulations shows that our method as well as control protocols is effective for the consensus of the linear multi-agent systems subject to actuator saturation.
