Online NMPC with obstacle avoidance

The video shows the online control of a scale car with nonlinear model-predictive control (NMPC) and obstacle avoidance. The position is obtained by an indoor GPS system. The online optimization within the NMPC is done by the software OCPID-DAE1.


This video shows our quadrocopter flying indoor by manual control.

Youbot High Precision Marking

The video shows an application with the KUKA youBot robot. The task is to mark predefined positions automatically with a high precision. The high accuracy is achieved with an external laser based positioning system.

GNEP-MPC for Coordination of Interacting Vehicles

The video presents a control experiment for interacting vehicles in a road network. The approach combines a high-level controller for the generation of collision-free trajectories and a low-level dynamic inversion controller for path tracking. The high-level controller uses model-predictive control for generalized Nash equilibrium problems, which are used to coordinate the vehicles. The control concept was implemented and validated on scale robots.
