We consider supervisory control of nonlinear systems which are implemented on digital networks. In particular, two candidate controllers are orchestrated by a supervisor to stabilize the origin of the plant by following a dwell time logic, i.e. evaluating a control-mode switching rule at instants which are at least spaced by some dwell time interval. The plant, the controllers and the supervisor communicate via a network and the transmissions are triggered by a mechanism at the discrete sampling instants, which leads to periodic event-triggered control. Thus, there are possibly two kinds of events generated at the sampling instants: the control-mode switching event to activate another contro..
