With the unceasing growth of intelligent systems that integrate sensors, actuators, and controllers in a wireless communication environment via the Internet of things (IoT), the development of rigorous resource-aware methods of implementing control laws into digital platforms are becoming extremely critical. The comprehensive development of event-triggered control in the past few years has been motivated by the crucial need to preserve limited computational and communication resources during the execution of feedback control tasks in constrained Networked Control Systems (NCS). The key idea of event-triggered control consists of the starting of ``only necessary” control action when events generated by the real-time systems' response occur, reducing considerably the number of execution of control tasks while preserving satisfactory closed-loop system performance. I will present new results about the design of event-triggered boundary control for plants governed by parabolic and hyperbolic partial differential equations.
