Abstract

In real-time feedback control systems, the freshness of the packet is crucial to control performance, where packet management is vital to keep data fresh. Recently, age of information (AOI) has been used to measure the freshness of the update information, where minimizing AOI becomes popular in system designs. In this paper, we find that minimizing AOI is not always equivalent to maximizing the control performance. In particular, we define a metric, called the age of stale information (AOSI), to link the instability of the control system to AOI. By minimizing AOSI, we can maximize the control performance, and also reduce the communication cost.
