In this chapter, the output tracking problem of networked MIMO linear systems is investigated. To compensate for random network-induced delays, packet disorders, and packet dropouts in the feedback and forward channels, a networked predictive output tracking control method is proposed based on a state-space model. In ideal situations, the resulting closed-loop networked system can achieve the same output tracking performance as that of the corresponding local control system. A stability condition is given for the closed-loop networked system, which also indicates that the separation principle of the observer-based controller design is still maintained. Simulation and experimental results are presented as confirmation of the proposed method.
