In this paper we consider the problem of designing controllers for linear plants to be implemented in embedded platforms under stringent real-time constraints. These include preemptive scheduling schemes, under which the maximum execution time allowed for control software tasks is uncertain. We propose an "anytime control" design approach, consisting in a hierarchy of controllers for the same plant. Higher controllers in the hierarchy provide better closed-loop performance, while typically requiring a larger worst-case execution time. We provide a procedure for the design of controllers which, together with a conditioning process of the stochastic scheduling, provides better performance than prevailing worst case-based design, while guaranteeing almost sure stability of the resulting switching system.

Abstract

In this paper we consider the problem of designing controllers for linear plants to be implemented in embedded platforms under stringent real-time constraints. These include preemptive scheduling schemes, under which the maximum execution time allowed for control software tasks is uncertain. We propose an "anytime control" design approach, consisting in a hierarchy of controllers for the same plant. Higher controllers in the hierarchy provide better closed-loop performance, while typically requiring a larger worst-case execution time. We provide a procedure for the design of controllers which, together with a conditioning process of the stochastic scheduling, provides better performance than prevailing worst case-based design, while guaranteeing almost sure stability of the resulting switching system.
