We design stabilizing controllers for nonlinear networked control systems (NCS) whose transmissions are scheduled by FlexRay. FlexRay protocol has been developed by the automotive industry to provide high bandwidth and deterministic communications. It works with communication cycles which consist of a static segment and a dynamic segment during which different scheduling rules are employed. We generalize existing emulated controller designs to be applicable to NCS with FlexRay. We start from a feedback law which stabilizes the origin of the plant when there is no network. We then present a novel hybrid model of the closed-loop system when the controller is implemented over a network schedule..
