This paper investigates the distributed consensus problem of multiagent systems with semi-Markovian jumping dynamics in the mean-square sense. Moreover, the mode-dependent communication topologies and sampled-data consensus protocol over the networks are considered. By semi-Markov jump theory, the consensus problem is first transformed into a mean-square stability problem. Then, sufficient conditions are established with the designed mode-dependent consensus protocol. Finally, a numerical example is provided for verifying the effectiveness of our theoretical results.
