By virtue of its ET nature, the algorithm can be used as the kernel of a robust networked control system. The design objective is indeed to reduce the number of transmissions over the network. The proposed ET-VSC also guarantees appropriate robustness properties, even in the presence of delayed transmissions. It is theoretically analysed, proving that the sliding variable associated with the controlled system results in being ultimately confined into a boundary layer of prescribed amplitude. As a consequence, it is proved that the state of the considered uncertain nonlinear system is ultimately bounded as well.
