In the first part of this talk, constrained networked control systems subject to time-varying delays, communication delays, and data losses are considered, and a novel receding horizon control strategy is presented. In particular, the proposed solution properly exploits Independent-of-Delay and Delay-Dependent stability concepts to obtain an overall control strategy. This guarantees Uniformly Ultimate Boundedness and constraints fulfillment of the regulated trajectory regardless of plant uncertainties and data loss occurrences. In the second part, the previously presented control framework is used to deal with networked leader-follower formations in the presence of time-varying delay and data loss.
Dr. Giuseppe Franzè received his Laurea degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Calabria, Italy, in 1994 and his Ph.D. degree in Systems Engineering from the same University in 1999. From 1994 to 2002, he was a Research Associate in the DEIS Department of the University of Calabria. From December 2002 to January 2015 he was an Assistant Professor in the same Department. Since January 2015, he is an Associate Professor in the DIMES Department of the University of Calabria. Since January 2018, he is the Director of the Master Degree Program in Automation Engineering at the University of Calabria.
Dr. Franzè is the author of more than 150 papers published in refereed international journals and conference proceedings. His main scientific interests include constrained predictive control, control reconfiguration for fault-tolerant systems, networked control systems, supervision approaches for remote control of dynamic systems over communication data networks, obstacle avoidance problems for autonomous vehicles, resilient control under cyber-attacks.
Since 2019, he is a senior member of the IEEE Control Systems Society, and he is currently serving as an Associate Editor of the IEEE/CAA Journal of Automatica Sinica (JAS). He has served as IPC and session chair in several international IEEE and IFAC conferences. In October 2014, Dr. Franzè obtained the Scientific National Qualification as Full Professor.
