A predictive PID controller is presented to achieve stability in wireless networked control systems, where the communication is subject to data packet dropouts in both communication routes: sensor to control and control to actuator transmission. The control strategy is based on General Predictive Control (GPC). A Kalman filter and a consecutive dropouts compensator algorithm have been added to the control scheme. The purpose of the algorithm is to develop an estimation and control system that maintains information of the sensor packets and the control actions. Several experiments using the TrueTime network simulator are provided to demonstrate the algorithm and its effectiveness.
