This talk aims to provide recent advances in event-triggered communication and control in networked control systems. First, the background and necessary of event-triggered communications in networked control systems are briefly introduced. Second, some recent results on event-triggered modeling and control for complex networked control systems are reviewed, and the advantages and disadvantages of event-triggered communication schemes and self-triggered communication schemes are analyzed and compared by practical examples. Third, some published results on reporter’s colleague are introduced, for example, the discrete event-triggered communication scheme, the self-triggered communication scheme, the mixed event and self-triggered communication scheme, and the resilient event-triggered communication scheme under consideration of Denial of Services (DoS) attacks. At last, some challenging points on event-triggered communications and networked control systems are discussed for future investigation.
