Abstract

We introduce a new class of dynamic encoders for continuous-time nonlinear control systems which update their parameters only at discrete times. We prove that the information reconstructed from the encoded feedback can be used to deliver a piece-wise constant control law which yields semi-global practical stability. The result is achieved by assuming a property weaker than asymptotic stabilizability. © 2005 IEEE.
