Abstract

In this work, Periodic Event-Triggered Sampling (PETS) and dual-rate control techniques are integrated in a Wireless Networked Control System (WNCS), where time-varying network-induced delays and packet disorder are present. Compared to the conventional Time- Triggered Sampling (TTS) paradigm, the control solution is able to considerably reduce network utilization (number of transmissions), while retaining a satisfactory control performance. Stability for the proposed WNCS is assured using Linear Matrix Inequalities (LMIs). Simulation results show the main benefits of the control approach, which are experimentally validated by means of an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) based test-bed platform.
