    Control over Low-Rate Noisy Channels2009Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Networked embedded control systems are present almost everywhere. A recent trendis to introduce radio communication in these systems to increase mobility and flex-ibility. Network nodes, such as the sensors, are often simple devices with limitedcomputing and transmission power and low storage capacity, so an important prob-lem concerns how to optimize the use of resources to provide sustained overall sys-tem performance. The approach to this problem taken in the thesis is to analyzeand design the communication and control application layers in an integrated man-ner. We focus in particular on cross-layer design techniques for closed-loop controlover non-ideal communication channels, motivated by future control systems withvery low-rate and highly quantized sensor communication over noisy links. Severalfundamental problems in the design of source–channel coding and optimal controlfor these systems are discussed.The thesis consists of three parts. The first and main part is devoted to the jointdesign of the coding and control for linear plants, whose state feedback is trans-mitted over a finite-rate noisy channel. The system performance is measured by afinite-horizon linear quadratic cost. We discuss equivalence and separation proper-ties of the system, and conclude that although certainty equivalence does not holdin general it can still be utilized, under certain conditions, to simplify the overalldesign by separating the estimation and the control problems. An iterative opti-mization algorithm for training the encoder–controller pairs, taking channel errorsinto account in the quantizer design, is proposed. Monte Carlo simulations demon-strate promising improvements in performance compared to traditional approaches.In the second part of the thesis, we study the rate allocation problem for statefeedback control of a linear plant over a noisy channel. Optimizing a time-varyingcommunication rate, subject to a maximum average-rate constraint, can be viewedas a method to overcome the limited bandwidth and energy resources and to achievebetter overall performance. The basic idea is to allow the sensor and the controllerto communicate with a higher data rate when it is required. One general obstacle ofoptimal rate allocation is that it often leads to a non-convex and non-linear problem.We deal with this challenge by using high-rate theory and Lagrange duality. It isshown that the proposed method gives a good performance compared to some otherrate allocation schemes.In the third part, encoder–controller design for Gaussian channels is addressed.Optimizing for the Gaussian channel increases the controller complexity substan-tially because the channel output alphabet is now infinite. We show that an efficientcontroller can be implemented using Hadamard techniques. Thereafter, we proposea practical controller that makes use of both soft and hard channel outputs.

    Source-channel coding for closed-loop control2006Licentiate thesis, monograph (Other scientific)
    Abstract [en]

    Networked embedded control systems are present almost everywhere. A recent trend is to introduce wireless sensor networks in these systems, to take advantage of the added mobility and flexibility offered by wireless solutions. In such networks, the sensor observations are typically quantized and transmitted over noisy links. Concerning the problem of closed-loop control over such non-ideal communication channels, relatively few works have appeared so far. This thesis contributes to this field, by studying some fundamentally important problems in the design of joint source--channel coding and optimal control.

    The main part of the thesis is devoted to joint design of the coding and control for scalar linear plants, whose state feedbacks are transmitted over binary symmetric channels. The performance is measured by a finite-horizon linear quadratic cost function. The certainty equivalence property of the studied systems is utilized, since it simplifies the overall design by separating the estimation and the control problems. An iterative optimization algorithm for training the encoder--decoder pairs, taking channel errors into account in the quantizer design, is proposed. Monte Carlo simulations demonstrate promising improvements in performance compared to traditional approaches.

    Event-triggered control strategies are a promising solution to the problem of efficient utilization of communication resources. The basic idea is to let each control loop communicate only when necessary. Event-triggered and quantized control are combined for plants affected by rarely occurring disturbances. Numerical experiments show that it is possible to achieve good control performance with limited control actuation and sensor communication.

    On rate allocation for multiple plants in a networked control system2012In: 2012 American Control Conference (ACC), IEEE Computer Society, 2012, p. 2024-2029Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The problem of allocating communication resources to multiple plants in a networked control system is investigated. In the presence of a shared communication medium, a total transmission rate constraint is imposed. For the purpose of optimizing the rate allocation to the plants over a finite horizon, two objective functions are considered. The first one is a single-objective function, and the second one is a multi-objective function. Because of the difficulty to derive the closed-form expression of these functions, which depend on the instantaneous communication rate, an approximation is proposed by using high-rate quantization theory. It is shown that the approximate objective functions are convex in the region of interest both in the scalar case and in the multi-objective case. This allows to establish a linear control policy given by the classical linear quadratic Gaussian theory as function of the channel. Based on this result, a new complex relation between the control performance and the channel error probability is characterized.

    Iterative encoder-controller design based on approximate dynamic programming2010In: IEEE Workshop on Signal Processing Advances in Wireless Communications, SPAWC, 2010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we study the iterative optimization of the encoder-controller pair for closed-loop control of a multi-dimensional plant over a noisy discrete memoryless channel. With the objective to minimize the expected linear quadratic cost over a finite horizon, we propose a joint design of the sensor measurement quantization, channel error protection, and optimal controller actuation. It was shown in our previous work that despite this optimization problem is known to be hard in general, an iterative design procedure can be derived to obtain a local optimal solution. However, in the vector case, optimizing the encoder for a fixed controller is in general not practically feasible due to the curse of dimensionality. In this paper, we propose a novel approach that uses the approximate dynamic programming (ADP) to implement a computationally feasible encoder updating policy with promising performance. Especially, we introduce encoder updating rules adopting the rollout approach. Numerical experiments are carried out to demonstrate the performance obtained by employing the proposed iterative design procedure and to compare it with other relevant schemes.

    Encoder-controller design for control over the binary-input Gaussian channel2010In: IEEE International Symposium on Spread Spectrum Techniques and Applications, IEEE , 2010, p. 23-28Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we consider the problem of the joint optimization of encoder-controller for closed-loop control with state feedback over a binary-input Gaussian channel (BGC). The objective is to minimize the expected linear quadratic cost over a finite horizon. Thisencoder-controller optimization problem is hard in general, mostly because of the curse of dimensionality. The result of this paper is a synthesis technique for a computationally feasible suboptimal controller which exploits both the soft and hard information of thechannel outputs. The proposed controller is efficient in the sense that it embraces measurement quantization, error protection and control over a finite-input infinite-output noisy channel. How to effectively implement this controller is also addressed in the paper. In particular, this is done by using Hadamard techniques. Numerical experiments are carried out to verify the promising gain offered by the combined controller, in comparison to the hard-information-based controller.

    Optimized Rate Allocation for State Estimation over Noisy Channels2009In: 2009 IEEE INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON INFORMATION THEORY, NEW YORK: IEEE , 2009, p. 2684-2688Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Optimal rate allocation in a networked control system with limited communication resources is instrumental to achieve satisfactory overall performance. In this paper, a practical rate allocation technique for state estimation in linear dynamic systems over a noisy channel is proposed. The method consists of two steps: (i) the overall distortion is expressed as a function of rates at all time instants by means of high-rate quantization theory, and (ii) a constrained optimization problem to minimize the overall distortion is solved by using Lagrange duality. Monte Carlo simulations illustrate the proposed scheme, which is shown to have good performance when compared to arbitrarily selected rate allocations.

    Rate Allocation for Quantized Control Over Binary Symmetric Channels2012In: IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, ISSN 1053-587X, E-ISSN 1941-0476, Vol. 60, no 6, p. 3188-3202Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Utility maximization in networked control systems (NCSs) is difficult in the presence of limited sensing and communication resources. In this paper, a new communication rate optimization method for state feedback control over a noisy channel is proposed. Linear dynamic systems with quantization errors, limited transmission rate, and noisy communication channels are considered. The most challenging part of the optimization is that no closed-form expressions are available for assessing the performance and the optimization problem is nonconvex. The proposed method consists of two steps: (i) the overall NCS performance measure is expressed as a function of rates at all time instants by means of high-rate quantization theory, and (ii) a constrained optimization problem to minimize a weighted quadratic objective function is solved. The proposed method is applied to the problem of state feedback control and the problem of state estimation. Monte Carlo simulations illustrate the performance of the proposed rate allocation. It is shown numerically that the proposed method has better performance when compared to arbitrarily selected rate allocations. Also, it is shown that in certain cases nonuniform rate allocation can outperform the uniform rate allocation, which is commonly considered in quantized control systems, for feedback control over noisy channels.

    A scheme for joint quantization, error protection and feedback control over noisy channels2007In: 2007 AMERICAN CONTROL CONFERENCE, VOLS 1-13: PROCEEDINGS OF THE AMERICAN CONTROL CONFERENCE, IEEE , 2007, p. 2456-2461Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We study a closed-loop scalar control system with feedback transmitted over a discrete noisy channel. For this problem, we propose a joint design of the state measurement quantization, protection against channel errors, and control. The goal is to minimize a linear quadratic cost function over a finite horizon. In particular we focus on a special case where we verify that certainty equivalence holds, and for this case we design joint source-channel encoder and decoder/estimator pairs. The proposed algorithm leads to a practically feasible design of time-varying non-uniform quantization and control. Numerical results demonstrate the promising performance obtained by employing the proposed iterative optimization algorithm.

    Encoder-decoder design for event-triggered feedback control over bandlimited channels2006In: 2006 American Control Conference, IEEE , 2006, Vol. 1-12, p. 4183-4188Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Bandwidth limitations and energy constraints set severe restrictions on the design of control systems that utilize wireless sensor and actuator networks. It is common in these systems that a sensor node needs not be continuously monitored, but communicates to the controller only at certain instances when it detects a disturbance event. In this paper, such a scenario is studied and particular emphasis is on efficient utilization of the shared communication resources. Encoder-decoder design for an event-based control system with the plant affected by pulse disturbances is considered. A new iterative procedure is proposed which can jointly optimize encoder-decoder pairs for a certainty equivalent controller. The goal is to minimize a design criterion, in particular, a linear quadratic cost over a finite horizon. The algorithm leads to a feasible design of time-varying non-uniform encoder-decoder pairs. Numerical results demonstrate significant improvements in performance compared to a system using uniform quantization.

    Iterative Encoder-Controller Design for Feedback Control Over Noisy Channels2011In: IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, ISSN 0018-9286, E-ISSN 1558-2523, Vol. 56, no 2, p. 265-278Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We study a closed-loop control system with state feedback transmitted over a noisy discrete memoryless channel. With the objective to minimize the expected linear quadratic cost over a finite horizon, we propose a joint design of the sensor measurement quantization, channel error protection, and controller actuation. It is argued that despite that this encoder-controller optimization problem is known to be hard in general, an iterative design procedure can be derived in which the controller is optimized for a fixed encoder, then the encoder is optimized for a fixed controller, etc. Several properties of such a scheme are discussed. For a fixed encoder, we study how to optimize the controller given that full or partial side-information is available at the encoder about the symbols received at the controller. It is shown that the certainty equivalence controller is optimal when the encoder is optimal and has full side-information. For a fixed controller, expressions for the optimal encoder are given and implications are discussed for the special cases when process, sensor, or channel noise is not present. Numerical experiments are carried out to demonstrate the performance obtained by employing the proposed iterative design procedure and to compare it with other relevant schemes.

We design encoder-controller pairs that jointly optimize the sensor measurement quantization, protection against channel errors, and control. The designgoal is to minimize an expected linear quadratic cost over a finite horizon. As a result of deriving optimality criteria for this problem, we present new results on the validity of theseparation principle subject to certain assumptions. More precisely, we show that the certainty equivalence controller is optimal when the encoder is optimal and has full side-information about the symbols received at the controller. We then use this result to formulate tractable design criteria in the general case. Finally, numerical experiments are carried out to demonstrate the performance obtained by various design methods.

    On the Dual Effect in State-based Scheduling of Networked Control Systems2011In: Proceedings of the 2011 American Control Conference, IEEE , 2011, p. 2216-2221Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we show that there is a dual effect with state-based scheduling. In general, this makes the optimal scheduler and controller hard to find. However, by removing past controls from the scheduling criterion, we find that certainty equivalence holds. This condition is related to the classical result of Bar-Shalom and Tse, and it leads to the design of a sub-optimal scheduler with a certainty equivalent controller. Furthermore, we show that a mapping of the state-based scheduler into one which fulfills this condition, and consequently has an optimal certainty equivalent controller, does not result in an equivalent class of design in the sense of Witsenhausen. Computing the estimate remains hard, but can be simplified by introducing a symmetry constraint on the scheduler.

    Anytime Source Transmission using UEP-LT Channel Coding2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we study the design of a causal anytime encoding and decoding scheme for transmission of real-time information over a binary symmetric channel. In particular, our scheme combines unequal-error protection (UEP) rateless codes with sequential belief propagation decoding. In order to minimize delay in decoding and reduce distortion, we formulate and solve a linear programming problem. Moreover, degree distributions of the UEP-rateless codes are optimized since the efficiency of rateless codes highly depends on the corresponding degree distribution. The performance of the proposed scheme is demonstrated by using numerical simulations, and will be compared with an existing work.

    Abstract [sv]

    This paper proposes a method to optimize the performance of tandemsource–channel coding with respect to the mean-squared error by exploiting the unequal error protection coding. More specifically,we formulate a combination of linear programming and gridsearch to optimize degree distributions for unequal error protected rateless channel codes. An asymptotic upper bound for the meansquared error of the cascaded system is also derived. By optimizing the corresponding degree distributions of the rateless codes using unequal error protection principles, the proposed scheme has shown promising performance at high resolution region of sourcecoding.

    Distortion Bounds on Anytime Source Transmission Using UEP Channel Coding2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we study the design of causal anytime codes for transmission over symmetric discrete memoryless channel. In our earlier work, we proposed an anytime transmission scheme which is based on unequal error protection using Luby transform codes (UEP-LT) and sequential belief propagation (BP) decoding. In this paper we extend our previous result by providing an analysis on the proposed scheme. In particular, an upperbound on the end-to-end distortion of the anytime transmission scheme is derived.

    Sufficient conditions for stabilization in feedback control over noisy channels using anytime rateless codes2012In: 2012 American Control Conference (ACC), IEEE Computer Society, 2012, p. 1254-1259Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We consider the problem of remotely controlling an unstable first-order noiseless linear plant over a discrete symmetric memoryless channel using anytime source-channel coding. We propose a transmission scheme, exploiting unequal error protection (UEP) based on Luby transform (LT) codes under sequential belief propagation (BP) decoding. Sufficient conditions on mean square stability of the linearly controlled closed-loop system are derived for the anytime UEP-LT codes.
