Reputation-Based Networked Control With Data-Corrupting Channels

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.
