(2014-01-16)Optimization of high-level autonomous tasks requires solving the optimal motion planning problem for a mobile robot. For example, to reach the desired destination on time, a self-driving car must quickly navigate streets ...
(2015-01-21)This thesis focuses on designing efficient mechanisms for controlling information spread in networks. We consider two models for information spread. The first one is the well-known distributed averaging dynamics. The second ...
A new numerical optimization method based on Taylor series for challenging trajectory optimization problems (2011-08-25)New methods to solve trajectory optimization problems are devised. The methods use direct transcription to convert the continuous optimal control problem into a parameter optimization problem that can be solved with ...
(2013-05-24)With growing demands and dwindling resources, the need for energy efficiency is being felt in all sectors. The transportation sector is one of the largest consumers of energy and to reduce fuel consumption and greenhouse ...
