In this paper, we investigate the stabilization problem of time-delay discrete-time systems with occurrence probabilities for time delays. Using an augmenting technique, we convert random time-delay discrete-time systems to delay-free systems with stochastic variables. We propose to design a sequence of delay-dependent controllers. The implemented controller is chosen according to the measured time delay at each sampling instant. When the delay is randomly time-varying, the implemented controller is switched in a designed controller set. An example is provided to illustrate the effectiveness of the stability condition and another example is offered to show the applicability of the proposed design algorithm.
