This paper investigates the robust quantized feedback stabilization problem for a class of single-input linear uncertain systems on the basis of sliding mode control schemes. It is assumed that the system signals including the system state and control input are quantized before being transmitted through digital communication channels. A static adjustment policy of the quantization parameter for dynamic quantizers is developed. With the adjustment of the quantization parameter, a sliding mode control strategy is designed to ensure the reachability of the sliding manifold, and then, the system is induced into the stable sliding motion thereafter. Finally, an example is provided to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach. Copyright © 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
