This paper is concerned with the problem of designing distributed event-triggered H∞ filters over sensor networks subject to heterogeneous coupling intercommunication delays. A new distributed event-triggered scheme is proposed to determine whether or not each sensor's current sampled data should be broadcasted and transmitted to its underlying neighboring nodes through the communication network. In this scheme, each sensor node is able to make its own decisions to broadcast and transmit only when its local measurement output error exceeds a designed threshold. Heterogeneous coupling delays are incorporated in the intercommunication between the specific sensor node and its interacting neighbors. A refined technique is proposed to realize the complicated decoupling among the exchanged measurement outputs in the presence of coupling intercommunication delays. Then the resulting filter error system is modeled by a new delay system subject to finite time-varying 'state' delays. Based on the Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional method, a sufficient condition for distributed event-triggered H∞ filter design is established, from which the desired filter parameters and the triggering parameter in the event condition can be co-designed. The filter design problem is posed in terms of linear matrix inequalities. A quarter-car suspension model is finally presented to show the effectiveness and feasibility of the developed theoretical results.
