Abstract:

Distributed control networks are rapidly emerging as a viable and important alternative to centralized control. In a typical distributed control network, a number of spatially distributed nodes composed of smart sensors and actuators are used to take measurements and apply control inputs to some physical plant. The nodes have local processing power and the ability to communicate with the other nodes via a network. The challenge is to compute and implement a feedback law for the resulting MIMO system in a distributed manner on the network.
