We propose a novel triggering policy to implement state-feedback controllers for nonlinear systems via packet-based communication networks. The idea is to generate transmissions between the plant and the controller only when a state-dependent rule has been satisfied for a given amount of time. We refer to this new paradigm as event-holding control, in which a clock variable is thus only running when a state-dependent criterion is verified. This is different from time-regularized event-triggered control, where the clock variable keeps running after each transmission instant until it is reset to zero at the moment a state-based condition is verified. We approach the problem of designing an event-holding controller via emulation. We first synthesize a state-feedback law, which stabilizes the closed-loop system in the absence of the communication network. We then design the event-holding triggering mechanism under a set of general assumptions. The results are applied to two case studies consisting of linear systems and a class of nonlinear systems controlled by backstepping. We also provide a numerical backstepping control example, which demonstrates that the event-holding behaviour can reduce the number of transmissions.
