This paper investigates the robust cooperative output regulation problem of uncertain linear multi-agent systems with additive disturbances via the celebrated internal model principle. Two novel distributed controllers are designed based on the adaptive control strategy and the event-triggered transmission scheme, where the adaptive control strategy is utilized to avoid the requirement for a priori knowledge of the minimal nonzero eigenvalue of the Laplacian matrix associated with the communication topology, and the event-triggered transmission scheme is utilized to reduce the frequency of data transmission. It is shown that the proposed control schemes achieve robust cooperative output regulation asymptotically and Zeno behavior is excluded. Finally, a simulation example is presented to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed controllers.
