IEEE Design & Test

This article presents a methodology for cross-layer control–communication co-synthesis of cyber-physical systems (CPSs), communicating over Ethernet networks, with stability guarantees. We consider the recently developed IEEE 802.1 Time-Sensitive Networking standards for real-time Ethernet communication, in particular 802.1Qbv-2015, which is gaining traction in automotive and industrial automation applications. Specifically, we address routing and static scheduling of Ethernet control packets in a CPS with a switched Ethernet communication network connecting sensors, computers, and actuators. The design problem spans the network and control application layers. Our proposed SMT-based solution integrates many decision variables and objectives related to message routing, scheduling, and control application stability.
