This paper studies system stability and performance of multi-agent systems in the context of consensus problems over wireless multiple-access channels (MAC). We propose a consensus algorithm that exploits the broadcast property of the wireless channel. Therefore, the algorithm is expected to exhibit fast convergence and high efficiency in terms of the usage of scarce wireless resources. The designed algorithm shows robustness against variations in the channel and consensus is always reached. However the consensus value will be depending on these variations.
