Wireless networked control systems (WNCSs) provide a key enabling technique for Industry Internet of Things (IIoT). However, in the literature of WNCSs, most of the research focuses on the control perspective, and has considered oversimplified models of wireless communications which do not capture the key parameters of a practical wireless communication system, such as latency, data rate and reliability. In this paper, we focus on a WNCS, where a controller transmits quantized and encoded control codewords to a remote actuator through a wireless channel, and adopt a detailed model of the wireless communication system, which jointly considers the inter-related communication parameters. We der..
