Control With Communication Constraints


Communication is an important component of networked control systems, and there is a need to understand the interactions between the control and communication components of the distributed system. In this chapter, we formulate a stabilization problem of linear systems over a communication channel that connects the sensor to the controller. Due to the communication data rate constraint, the information exchange between the sensor and controller has to be quantized before transmission. Quantization refers to the process of approximating the continuous set of values with a finite (preferably small) set of values. In fact, quantization has been a long research topic in communications ...
