— The communication protocol IEEE 802.15.4 is becoming pervasive for low power and low data rate wireless sensor networks (WSNs) applications, including control and automation. Nevertheless, there is not yet any adequate study about control systems networked by this protocol. In this paper, the stability of IEEE 802.15.4 networked control systems (NCSs) is(More)
Self-triggered sampling is an attractive paradigm for closed-loop control over energy-constrained wireless sensor networks (WSNs) because it may give substantial communication savings. The understanding of the performance of self-triggered control systems when the feedback loops are closed over IEEE 802.15.4 WSNs is of major interest, since the(More)
SUMMARY This paper describes a new industrial case on automation, for large-scale systems with high environmental impact: the mining ventilation control systems. Ventilation control is essential for the operation of a mine in terms of safety (CO and NO x regulation) and energy optimization. We first discuss a novel regulation architecture, highlighting the(More)
In this paper the design of an event-based proportional-integral (PI) control scheme for stable first-order processes is considered. A novel triggering mechanism which decides the transmission instants based on an estimate of the PI control signal is proposed. This mechanism addresses some side-effects that have been discovered in previous event-triggered(More)
