  • Speaker: Dr Philipp Braun, School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, The University of Newcastle
  • Title: Obstacle avoidance controller design
  • Location: V205, Mathematics Building (Callaghan), The University of Newcastle
  • Time and Date: 4:00 pm, Thu, 22nd Mar 2018
  • Abstract:
    Constructive methods for the controller design for dynamical systems subject to bounded state constraints have only been investigated by a limited number of researchers. The construction of robust control laws is significantly more difficult compared to unconstrained problems due to the necessity of discontinuous feedback laws. A rigorous understanding of the problem is however important in obstacle or collision avoidance for mobile robots, for example. In this talk we present preliminary results on the controller design for obstacle avoidance of linear systems based on the notation of hybrid systems. In particular, we derive a discontinuous feedback law, globally stabilizing the origin while avoiding a neighborhood around an obstacle. In this context, additionally an explicit bound on the maximal size of the obstacle is provided.
