This paper addresses a broadcast control problem of multi-agent systems with quantized measurements, where each agent moves based on the common broadcasted signal and tries to minimize a given quadratic performance index. The problem is solved by introducing dither type random movements to the agents' action which reduce the degradation caused by quantized measurements. A broadcast controller is derived and it is proven that the controller approximately achieves given tasks with probability 1. The effectiveness of the proposed controller is demonstrated by numerical simulation.
