This article studies the experimental synchronization of a family of a recently proposed oscillator model, i.e. the Brockett oscillator [R. Brockett, Synchronization without periodicity, in Mathematical Systems Theory, A Volume in Honor of U. Helmke, edited by K. Huper, J. Trumpf (CreateSpace, Seattle, USA, 2013), pp. 65–74]. Due to its structural property, Brockett oscillator can be considered as a promising benchmark nonlinear model for investigating synchronization and the consensus phenomena. Our experimental setup consists of analog circuit realizations of a network of Brockett oscillators. Experimental results obtained in this work correspond to the prior theoretical findings.
