In this paper, we consider a controller tuning method of the Smith compensator for multi-input and multi-output (MIMO) systems with both input delays and output delays. Particularly, we discuss on the application of Fictitious Reference Iterative Tuning (FRIT), which is one of the data-driven controller update methods utilizing one-shot experimental data. To apply FRIT to systems where both input and output have time delays, we introduce a specific structure of the Smith compensator with tunable parameters. In addition, we consider the meaning of the cost function used in the proposed method. Finally, we illustrate a numerical example to show the validity and the effectiveness of the proposed method.
