In this chapter, we introduce the concept of Networked Control System (NCS), the irregularities such as time delay and packet loss that occurs in the NCS. We also discussed the various control methods available for NCS. This chapter also presents the concept of sliding mode control along with the literature survey on SMC for NCS.
