In this project, we propose the development and implementation of a communication network fault tolerant control responsible for the coordination of Wheeled Mobile Robots (WMR) and a quadcopter. Two approaches for networked systems are combined: the first one is a filter designed for linear systems subjected to Markovian jumps to deal with package loss and the second is a state feedback switched controller to deal with the time delay problem.
