Dynamic Optimization Techniques for the Motion Coordination of Autonomous Vehicles

Part of the Lecture Notes in Control and Information Sciences book series (LNCIS,volume 456)

Abstract

Problems of motion coordination for autonomous vehicles are discussed in the framework of dynamic programming (DP). The challenges of the practical deployment of DP-based controllers are illustrated with a formation control problem.

Keywords

  • State Constraint
  • Autonomous Underwater Vehicle
  • Virtual Leader
  • Formation Control Problem
  • Cooperative Dynamic Game

These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
