Abstract: In the past decades, communication networks have been extensively employed in many practical control systems, such as manufacturing plants, aircraft, and spacecraft to transmit information and control signals between the system components. When a control loop is closed via a serial communication channel, a networked control system (NCS) is formed. NCSs have become very popular for their great advantages over traditional systems (e.g., low cost, reduced weight, and power requirements, etc.). Generally, it has been implicitly assumed that the communication between the system components is perfect; that is, the signals transmitted from the plant always arrive at the filter or controller without any information loss. Unfortunately, such an assumption is not always true. For example, a common feature of the NCSs is the presence of significant network-induced delays and data losses across the networks. Therefore, an emerging research topic that has recently drawn much attention is how to cope with the effect of network-induced phenomena due to the unreliability of the network communication. This special issue aims at bringing together the latest approaches to understand, filter, and control for discrete-time systems under unreliable communication. Potential topics include but are not limited to (a) multiobjective filtering or control, (b) network-induced phenomena, (c) stability analysis, (d) robustness and fragility, and (e) applications in real-world discrete-time systems.
