Networked Control Systems over mobile ad-hoc networks have drawn the attention of the researchers because of its suitability in various ad-hoc applications. This paper presents the investigation of such systems using both real wireless communication and co-simulation of Matlab and OPNET. The plant and the wireless node models are simulated on a computer by Matlab and OPNET, respectively. The controller model is run on a laptop. These two computers communicate using a real wireless link. The interactive co-simulation is applied to a double pendulum plant with two sensors and two actuators. Both the co-simulation technique and the results are presented and discussed. Copyright © 2007 International Federation of Automatic Control All Rights Reserved.
