Access Scheduling and Controller Design in Networked Control Systems

A Networked Control System (NCS) is a control system in which the sensors and actuators are connected to a feedback controller via a shared communication medium. In an NCS, the shared medium can only provide a limited number of simultaneous connections for the sensors and actuators to communicate with the controller. As a consequence, the design of an NCS involves not only the specification of a feedback controller but also that of a communication policy that schedules access to the shared communication medium. Up to now, this task has posed a significant challenge, due in large part to the modeling complexity of existing NCS architectures..
