In network-based control systems (NCSs), plant sensor-controller-actuator nodes in closed-loop operation drive principal network traffic. The quality-of-control (QoC) in an NCS, i.e., the performance delivered by each closed-loop operation, depends not only on the controller design but also on the message scheduling strategy. In this paper, we show that the co-design of adaptive controllers and feedback scheduling policies allows for the optimization of the overall QoC. First, we discuss the limitations of standard discrete-time control models for controllers of control loops that are closed over communication networks. Afterwards, we describe an approach to adaptive controllers for NCS that: 1) overcomes some of the previous restrictions by online adapting the control decisions according to the dynamics of both the application and executing platform and 2) offers capabilities for dynamic management of QoC through message scheduling.
