Networked Control Systems (NCS) have been proposed as the paradigm to model, design and analyze control systems where the effects of computation and communication on the performance of the closed loop system cannot be neglected and need to be incorporated in the model. NCS are amenable to describe large-scale systems where components may be spatially distributed and demand the services of a communication network to exchange information. Integration of communication models traditionally renders the problem of design and analysis very complex, as the traditional mathematical machinery employed in control systems in general is not adequate to include in its framework stochastic models of communication.
