In this technical note, an impulsive consensus algorithm is proposed for second-order continuous-time multi-agent networks with switching topology. The communication among agents occurs at sampling instants based on position only measurements. By using the property of stochastic matrices and algebraic graph theory, some sufficient conditions are obtained to ensure the consensus of the controlled multi-agent network if the communication graph has a spanning tree jointly. A numerical example is given to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.
