ConDyS – Workshop on Control of Dynamical Systems

Next month on June 14-16, our Head Enrique Zuazua will be talking about “Dynamics and Control of a guiding Model” at the Workshop on Control of Dynamical Systems organized by the ConDyS Project in Dubrovnik, Croatia, to share the most recent results and trends in control theory and its applications.

Abstract. We model, simulate and control the guiding problem for a herd of evaders under the action of repulsive drivers. The problem is formulated in an optimal control framework, where the drivers (controls) aim to guide the evaders (states) to a desired region of the Euclidean space. Classical control methods allow to build coordinated strategies so that the drivers successfully drive the evaders to the desired final destination. But the computational cost quickly becomes unfeasible when the number of interacting agents is large. We present a method that combines the Random Batch Method (RBM) and Model Predictive Control (MPC) to significantly reduce the computational cost without compromising the efficiency of the control strategy. An analysis of the comnvergence of these methods, together with some open problems will also be presented.

This talk is based on joint work with Dongnam Ko, from the Catholic University of Korea, and Daniël Veldman (FAU).
