This paper presents an algorithm that estimates a measured output, which has been converted to a binary representation in order to transmit the information via a digital communication channel. The purpose of the estimator is to mitigate the effect of the delay due to transmitting the information across the communication channel. The algorithm uses each bit of the output sample to estimate the output sample value as it is being transmitted, and updates the control signal based on this estimate. Some basic analysis of this algorithm is presented along with simulations and a discussion on situations in which it could be beneficial.
