Abstract

When designing a distributed control system, the system designer has a choice in how to connect the different components through communication channels. In practice, noiseless and noisy channels often coexist. Using the standard toy example of scalar stabilization, this paper shows how a small amount of noiseless feedback can perform a "supervisory" role and thereby boost the effectiveness of noisy feedback.
