Abstract:
Recent technological advancements have given rise to a new class of computing and communication
systems, composed of wired/wireless networked embedded subsystems. Use of these networked em-
bedded devices for the coordination and control of large systems in the physical world, such as infra-
structures, can improve performance of existing applications as well as pave the road to the conception
of new ones. Applications like inventory monitoring and control, home and building automation, power
systems, security systems, precision agriculture, can all benefit from the use of a network connecting
its components, by reducing operating cost and improving performance.
This flexibility comes at the cost of complexity. In particular, when dealing with control applications,
the effect of communication delays and loss of information in the control loop cannot be neglected,
since data travel along unreliable communication channels in possibly large, wireless, multi-hop sen-
sor network. In this talk, I will develop the rudiments of a theory of estimation and control for networked
