An Evolutionary Approach to Passive Learning in Optimal Control Problems

D. Blueschke, Ivan Savin, V. Blueschke-Nikolaeva
2018 Social Science Research Network  
We consider the optimal control problem of a small nonlinear econometric model under parameter uncertainty and passive learning (open-loop feedback).  ...  Furthermore, to apply those established methods, the original nonlinear problem must be linearized first, which runs the risk of solving already a different problem.  ...  as you give appropriate credit to the original author(s) and the source, provide a link to the Creative Commons licence, and indicate if changes were made.  ...

2008 2008 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems  
We first propose a method allowing to compute the visual data when they are totally lost, before addressing the obstacle avoidance problem.  ...  Then, we design a sensor-based control strategy to perform safely vision-based tasks despite complete loss of the image. Simulation and experimental results validate our work.  ...  Section II is dedicated to the problem statement and to our estimation method. Section III addresses the avoidance problem and describes the chosen control strategy.  ...
