* TuLiP: you will need a python installation (2.6 or greater) with SciPy (0.9 or greater) installed.  You might consider using the [http://enthought.com Enthought Python distribution].  Once you have scipy installed, you will need to install several other python packages, including cvxopt and yices.  A [http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/tulip-control/index.php?title=Main_Page list of required package] is available on the TuLiP project page.

of Networked Control Systems
 

Richard M. Murray and Nok Wongpiromsarn

9-13 March 2012, Istanbul (Turkey)

Course Description

Increases in fast and inexpensive computing and communications have enabled a new generation of information-rich control systems that rely on multi-threaded networked execution, distributed optimization, sensor fusion and protocol stacks in increasingly sophisticated ways. This course will provide working knowledge of a collection of methods and tools for specifying, designing and verifying control protocols for autonomous systems, including self-driving cars. We combine methods from computer science (temporal logic, model checking, reactive synthesis) with those from control theory (abstraction methods, optimal control, invariants sets) to analyze and design partially asynchronous control protocols for continuous systems. In addition to introducing the mathematical techniques required to formulate problems and prove properties, we also describe a software toolbox, TuLiP, that is designed for analyzing and synthesizing hybrid control systems using temporal logic and robust performance specifications.

Reading

The following papers and textbooks will be used heavily throughout the course:

Additional references for individual topics are included on the individual lecture pages.

Software Installation

We will make use of two programs during the lab sessions:

  • PRISM/Storm
  • TuLiP - python-based toolbox for temporal logic planning and controller synthesis

During the course, we will access these programs on a remote machine using ssh. For some parts of the course it will be useful to have a local installation of MATLAB that can be used for visualizing some simulation results.

If you would like to install the software on your own, here are some basic directions for installing the two packages:

  • Storm: TBD
  • TuLiP: TBD
