Distributed Control and Filtering of Networked Systems


Recent advances in networking technologies, especially wireless networks, generate a new paradigm of control and filtering for industrial systems via networks. Traditionally, such systems are controlled and estimated by independent networks, which are designed with enough bandwidth and resources. In network environments, shared wired and wireless networks are utilized to connect industrial systems and controllers/filters. In this new framework, bandwidth and resource constraints should be taken into account in controller/ filter design, and real-time becomes increasingly important to control and filtering. This seminar will provide a timely discussion on technical trends and challenges of distributed coordinated control and filtering for networked systems.
