We study the problem of synchronizing a moving agent network by means of power adaptation strategy in the case where each agent is assigned power to establish directed connections with those of neighboring agents, and the power of each agent develops adaptively according to the local property between the agent and its neighbors. We show that our strategy is effective in achieving synchronization of the mobile agent network when selecting a proper operating parameter. In particular, we investigate the effect of the operating parameter on network synchronization by evaluating convergence time and energy efficiency.
