This study proposes a design method for unilateral control systems with communication rate constraints. In the case where it is necessary to control under a communication rate constraint, the effect of the quantization noise should be minimized using effective signal quantization methods. One of the effective methods for signal quantization is a feedback-type dynamic quantizer. We previously proposed a design method for a dynamic quantizer under communication rate constraints. In this paper, a unilateral control structure is proposed to minimize the effect of the quantization error. The design method for the quantizer is applied to the proposed structure. The effectiveness of the proposed system with the designed quantizer is assessed via numerical examples.
