Recent technological developments and the need for global control strategies to meet with stringent performance requirements rendered the use of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) of prime importance for today's automation. Such communication devices heavily affect the information transport, especially when a multi-hop configuration is introduced to minimize the energy consumption of the network. The associated time-delays are strongly varying and necessitate the design of a dedicated control approach for remote regulation, as proposed in this paper.
