In this lecture we present two examples of networked control systems that have been implemented on representative hardware. In the first example, we briefly consider a demonstration of the "lost wingman" protocol on a T-33 test aircraft acting as the wingman for a (human-piloted) F-15 aircraft. The controller is implemented using receding horizon control and CCL. In the second example we present the implementation and results of Caltech's entry in the 2007 DARPA Urban Challenge.
