In the purpose of making the consensus algorithm robust to outliers, consensus on the median value has recently attracted some attention. It has its applicability in for instance constructing a resilient distributed state estimator. Meanwhile, most of the existing works consider continuous-time algorithms and uses high-gain and discontinuous vector fields. This issues a problem of the need for smaller time steps and yielding chattering when discretizing by explicit method for its practical use. Thus, in this paper, we highlight that these issues vanish when we utilize instead Implicit-Explicit Method, for a broader class of networks designed by the blended dynamics approach. In particular, for undirected and connected graphs, we propose a discrete-time distributed median solver that does not suffer from chattering. We also verify by simulation that it has a smaller iteration number required to arrive at a steady-state.
