|LASSO-MPC: Model Predictive Control (MPC) for over-actuated system.|
This project aims advanced research on constrained Model Predictive Control. Main topic of investigation is the use of a particular cost function (l1 regularised least squares), for over-actuated systems, where the number of actuators is greater or equal than the number of control variables (DOF). Target applications include motion control of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) formation control, besides classic industrial applications.
