Abstract [en]

In this paper, we study attitude synchronization for elements in the unit sphere in $\mathbb {R}<^>{\scriptscriptstyle {\scriptscriptstyle {3}}}$ and for elements in the three-dimensional (3-D) rotation group, for a network with switching topology. The agents' angular velocities are assumed to be the control inputs, and a switching control law for each agent is devised that guarantees synchronization, provided that all elements are initially contained in a region, which we identify later in the paper. The control law is decentralized and it does not require a common orientation frame among all agents. We refer to synchronization of unit vectors in $\mathbb {R}<^>{\scriptscriptstyle {3}}$ as incomplete synchronization, and of 3-D rotation matrices as complete synchronization. Our main contribution lies in showing that these two problems can be analyzed under a common framework, where all agents' dynamics are transformed into unit vectors dynamics on a sphere of appropriate dimension.

Abstract [en]

In this paper, we propose a novel framework that provides a systematic strategy to regulate the rigid body attitude on SO(3) within a generic constrained attitude zone. The proposed control scheme consists of three components: sampling, planning and low-level control. Specifically, an overlapping cell-like sampling for the attitude configuration space SO(3) is built and further reformulated to a graph model. Based on this abstraction, a complete graph search algorithm is utilized to generate a feasible path in the graph model. Both sufficient and necessary conditions on finding a feasible path are presented. Furthermore, to facilitate the control design, the point-to-point path is transformed into a smooth reference trajectory along the geodesics. Finally, a saturated low-level control law is formulated to robustly track the desired trajectory. Simulations demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed control approach.

Abstract [en]

This work focuses on the modeling, control and analysis of a bar, tethered to two unmanned aerial vehicles, which is required to stabilize around a desired pose. We derive the equations of motion of the system, we close the loop by equipping each UAV with a PID control law, and finally we linearize the closed-loop vector field around some equilibrium points of interest. When requiring the bar to stay on the horizontal plane and under no normal stress, we verify that the bar's motion is decomposable into three decoupled motions, namely a longitudinal, a lateral and a vertical: for a symmetric system, each of those motions is further decomposed into two decoupled sub-motions, one linear and one angular; for an asymmetric system, we provide relations on the UAVs' gains that compensate for the system asymmetries and which decouple the linear sub-motions from the angular sub-motions. From this analysis, we provide conditions, based on the system's physical parameters, that describe good and bad types of asymmetries. Finally, when requiring the bar to pitch or to be under normal stress, we verify that there is a coupling between the longitudinal and the vertical motions, and that a positive normal stress (tension) has a positive effect on the stability, while a negative normal stress (compression) has a negative effect on the stability.

Abstract [en]

This paper studies the construction of symbolic abstractions for nonlinear control systems via feedback refinement relation. Both the delay-free and time-delay cases are addressed. For the delay-free case, to reduce the computational complexity, we propose a new approximation approach for the state and input sets based on a static quantizer, and then a novel symbolic model is constructed such that the original system and the symbolic model satisfy the feedback refinement relation. For the time-delay case, both static and dynamic quantizers are combined to approximate the state and input sets. This leads to a novel dynamic symbolic model for time-delay control systems, and a feedback refinement relation is established between the original system and the symbolic model. Finally, a numerical example is presented to illustrate the obtained results.

Abstract [en]

We propose control and communication strategies for nonlinear networked control systems subject to state and input constraints. The objective is to steer the state of the system toward a prescribed target set in finite time (reachability), while at the same time remaining inside a safety set for all time (safety). By leveraging the notion of the $\delta$-input-to-state stability (ISS) control Lyapunov function, we derive a sufficient condition to generate a communication scheduling, such that the resulting state trajectory guarantees reachability and safety. Moreover, in order to alleviate computational burden, we present a way to find a suitable communication scheduling by implementing abstraction schemes and standard graph search methodologies. Simulation examples validate the effectiveness of the proposed approach.

Abstract [en]

For a vehicle moving in an n-dimensional Euclidean space, we present a construction of a hybrid feedback that guarantees both global asymptotic stabilization of a reference position and avoidance of an obstacle corresponding to a bounded spherical region. The proposed hybrid control algorithm switches between two modes of operation: stabilization (motion-to-goal) and avoidance (boundary-following). The geometric construction of the flow and jump sets of the hybrid controller, exploiting a hysteresis region, guarantees robust switching (chattering-free) between stabilization and avoidance. Simulation results illustrate the performance of the proposed hybrid control approach for a 3-dimensional scenario.

Abstract [en]

This article describes a system to facilitate dynamic en route formation of heavy-duty vehicle platoons with the goal of reducing fuel consumption. Safe vehicle platooning is a maturing technology that leverages modern sensor, control, and communication technology to automatically regulate the inter-vehicle distances. Truck platooning has been shown to reduce fuel consumption through slipstreaming by up to 10% under realistic highway-driving conditions. To further benefit from this technology, a platoon coordinator is proposed, which interfaces with fleet management systems and suggests how platoons can be formed in a fuel-efficient manner over a large region. The coordinator frequently updates the plans to react to newly available information. This way, it requires a minimum of customization with respect to the logistic operations.We discuss the system architecture in detail and introduce important underlying methodological foundations. Plans are derived in computationally tractable stages optimizing fuel savings from platooning. The effectiveness of this approach is verified in a simulation study. It shows that the coordinated platooning system can improve over spontaneously occurring platooning even under the presence of disturbances. A real demonstrator has also been developed. We present data from an experiment in which three vehicles were coordinated to form a platoon on public highways under normal traffic conditions. It demonstrates the feasibility of coordinated en route platoon formation with current communication and on-board technology. Simulations and experiments support that the proposed system is technically feasible and a potential solution to the problem of using vehicle platooning in an operational context.

Abstract [en]

In this letter, we investigate novel self-triggered controllers for nonlinear control systems with reachability and safety specifications. To synthesize the self-triggered controller, we leverage the notion of symbolic models, or abstractions, which represent abstracted expressions of control systems. The symbolic models will be constructed through the concepts of approximate alternating simulation relations, based on which, and by employing a reachability game, the self-triggered controller is synthesized. We illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach through numerical simulations.

Abstract [en]

In this paper we present a decentralized abstraction framework for multiagent systems with couplings in their dynamics, which arise in their popular coordination protocols. The discrete models are basexl on a varying decentralization degree, namely, the agents' individual abstractions are obtained by using discrete information up to a tunable distance in their network graph. Deriving these models at the agent level is essential to address scalability issues which appear in the discretization of systems with a high state dimension. The approach builds on the appropriate discretization of the agents' state space and the selection of a transition time step, which enable the construction of a nonblocking transition system for each agent with quantifiable transition possibilities. The transitions are based on the design of local feedback laws for the manipulation of the coupling terms, which guarantee the execution of the transitions by the continuous systems. For a class of nonlinear agent interconnections, the derivation of such abstractions is always guaranteed, based on sufficient conditions which relate the agents' dynamics and the space/time quantization.

Abstract [en]

This paper presents a novel control methodologyfor the coordination of a multi-agent system with 2nd orderuncertain Lagrangian dynamics, while guaranteeing collisionand connectivity properties in the transient state. More specifically,we consider that a leader agent aims at tracking adesired pose, while all the agents must avoid collisions witheach other. Motivated by cooperative tasks, we also considerthat a subset of the initially connected agents must remainconnected, in the sense of a connected sensing graph.We employa key property of the incidence matrix and integrate potentialfields with discontinuous adaptive control laws to compensatefor unknown dynamic parameters of the model and externaldisturbances. Simulation results in a realistic dynamics engineillustrate the theoretical findings.
