Self-triggered control over wireless sensor and actuator networks
2011 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Energy and communication bandwidth are scarce resources in wireless sensor and actuator networks. Recent research efforts considered the control of physical processes over such resource limited networks. Most of the existing literature addressing this topic is dedicated to periodically sampled control loops and scheduled communication, because it simplifies the analysis and the implementation. We propose instead an aperiodic network transmission scheme that reduces the number of transmission instances for the sensor and control nodes, thereby reducing energy consumption and increasing network lifetime, without sacrificing control performance. As an added benefit, we show the possibility of dynamically allocating the network bandwidth based on the physical system state and the available resources. In order to allow timely, reliable, and energy efficient communication, we propose a new co-design framework for the wireless medium access control, compatible with the IEEE 802.15.4 standard. Furthermore, we validate our approach in a real wireless networked control implementation.
