For state estimation in networked control systems, the impact of packet dropping and delay over network links is an important problem. In this paper, we introduce multiple description (MD) source coding scheme to improve the statistical stability and performance of the estimation error covariance of Kalman filtering with packet loss. We consider about two cases: when the packet loss over network links occurs in an i.i.d. fashion or in a bursty fashion. Compared with the traditional single description source coding, MD coding scheme can greatly improve the performance of Kalman filtering over a large set of packet loss scenarios in both cases.
