Hierarchical model predictive control for resource distribution
This paper deals with hierarchical model predictive control (MPC) of distributed systems. A threelevel hierarchical approach is proposed, consisting of a high level MPC controller,...

An adjoint method for second-order switching time optimization
Abstract-- Switched systems evolve over a sequence of continuous modes of operation, transitioning between modes in a discrete manner. Assuming a mode sequence is known, the evolut...

Multi-robot monitoring in dynamic environments with guaranteed currency of observations
Abstract-- In this paper we consider the problem of monitoring a known set of stationary features (or locations of interest) in an environment. To observe a feature, a robot must v...

Delayed decision-making in bistable models
Switching between two modes of operation is a common property of biological systems. In continuous-time differential equation models, this is often realised by bistability, i.e. th...

Adaptive self-triggered control over IEEE 802.15.4 networks
The communication protocol IEEE 802.15.4 is becoming pervasive for low power and low data rate wireless sensor networks (WSNs) applications, including control and automation. Never...

Lyapunov stability of linear predictor feedback for distributed input delays
Compensation of distributed delays in MIMO, LTI systems is achieved using Artstein's reduction method. In this technical note, we construct a Lyapunov functional for the resul...

Achieving higher frequencies in large-scale nonlinear model predictive control
We present new insights into how to achieve higher frequencies in large-scale nonlinear predictive control using truncated-like schemes. The basic idea is that, instead of solving ...

Sufficient conditions for flocking via graph robustness analysis
In this paper, we consider a multi-agent system consisting of mobile agents with second-order dynamics. The communication network is determined by a standard interaction rule based...
