The majority of research in control engineering considers periodic or time-triggered control systems with equidistant sample intervals. However, practical cases abound in which it is of interest to consider event-driven control systems, where the sampling is event-triggered. Although there are various benefits of using event-driven control like reducing resource usage (e.g. processor and communication load), their application in practice is hampered by the lack of a system theory for event-driven control systems. In this paper we present two types of event-driven controllers and show their potential via industrially relevant case studies and indicate initial theoretical results.
