17-21 March 2008

Increases in fast and inexpensive computing and communications have enabled a new generation information-rich control systems that rely on multi-threaded networked execution, distributed optimization, adaptation and learning, and contingency management in increasingly sophisticated ways. This set of lectures will provide an introduction to the theory and tools for building such systems, focusing on the so-called “networked” control systems in which the components that form the system are connected through a communication network. These lectures were developed as part of a course at Caltech on “Networked Control Systems”, first offered in Spring 2006.

Course information

Lecture Schedule

The schedule below lists the lectures that will be given as part of the course. Each lecture will last approximately 90 minutes. The individual lecture pages give an overview of the lecture and links to additional information.
