Asynchronous Packetized Model Predictive Control
This chapter studies an asynchronous packet-based predictive schemer for single-loop control systems. The main goal is reducing the performance degradation caused by data dropouts in networked systems. To this end, the method proposes the use of a model predictive controller and a buffer at the actuator side. Packets are transmitted through the network only when they contain innovative information with respect to those packets transmitted before.
