Summary: 
In this paper, we consider a networked control system where bounded network delays and packet dropouts exist in the network. The physical plant is abstracted by a transition system whose states are quantized states of the plant measured by a sensor, and a control specification for the abstracted plant is given by a transition system when no network disturbance occurs. Then, we design a prediction-based controller that determines a control input by predicting a set of all feasible abstracted states at time when the actuator receives the delayed input. It is proved that the prediction-based controller suppresses effects of network delays and packet dropouts and that the controlled plant still achieves the specification in spite of the existence of network delays and packet dropouts.
