However, control theory abstracts software actions as actions that take no time to execute. In reality, software execution takes time—and this execution time can be affected by a number of platform issues, including the speed of the processor, the scheduler used to share the processor between multiple tasks, and network delays that occur when computations go across networks, among others. In this chapter we discuss such software and platform effects, as well as techniques used to design control systems that ...
