This paper addresses adaptive performance management of real-time computing systems. We consider a generic model-based predictive control approach that can be applied to a variety of computing applications in which the system performance must be tuned using a finite set of control inputs. The paper focuses on several key aspects affecting the application of(More)
Wireless Networked Control Systems (NCS) are increasingly deployed to monitor and control Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). To achieve and maintain a desirable level of performance, NCS face significant challenges posed by the scarce wireless resource and network dynamics. In this paper, we consider NCS consisting of multiple physical plant and digital(More)
This paper presents the Networked Control Systems Windtunnel (NCSWT), an integrated modeling and simulation tool for the evaluation of networked control systems (NCS). NCSWT integrates Matlab/Simulink and ns-2 using the High Level Architecture (HLA). Our implementation of the NCSWT based on HLA guarantees accurate time synchronization and data communication(More)
Cyber-physical systems, such groups of unmanned aerial vehicles, are often monitored and controlled by networked control systems (NCS). NCS are deployed in many environments subject to realistic, complex network interactions, so evaluation of NCS is crucial to ensuring that NCS function as intended. Given the varied nature of NCS, it is appropriate to use a(More)
Building networked control systems over wireless networks is an extremely challenging task, as the wireless communication characteristics such as random packet losses and delay, significantly affect the stability and the performance of the control systems. We present a novel approach to the design of wireless networked control system. This approach(More)
Fair resource allocation for end-to-end flows is an important yet challenging problem in multi-hop wireless networks. Recent research on fair resource allocation mainly focuses on two directions: 1) theoretical methods for joint optimization of scheduling and rate allocation, which are inherently hard to implement; 2) heuristic rate allocation solutions,(More)
Building networked control systems is a promising direction that promotes the evolution of the traditional control systems. The ability of using different sampling rates in control systems provides the flexibility for adapting their resource needs based on the dynamic networking environment. This paper studies the dynamic rate adaptation problem for(More)
