The article presents a new methodology applicable to batch processes called iterative nonlinear model predictive control (INMPC). It incorporates the ability of learning from past batches (known as iterative learning control or ILC) to an underlying nonlinear model predictive controller. The main...
This paper addresses the cooperation problem for a team of mobile robots in adversarial environments. Considering the mutual influence among the robots, two key factors are defined: the impact factor and the suffering factor. A stochastic assignment model is built, based on the geometric topology...
