Reputation-Based Networked Control With Data-Corrupting Channels

Executive Summary

The authors examine the problem of reliable networked control when the communication channel between the controller and the actuator periodically drops packets and is faulty i.e., corrupts/ alters data. They first examine the use of a standard triple modular redundancy scheme (where the control input is sent via three independent channels) with majority voting to achieve mean square stability. While such a scheme is able to tolerate a single faulty channel when there are no packet drops, the authors show that the presence of lossy channels prevents a simple majority-voting approach from stabilizing the system.
