讲座简介：autonomous intelligent systems, which lie at the intersection of unmanned systems, robotics, systems and control, multi-agent systems, networked and distributed systems, machine learning, etc. autonomous intelligent systems are equipped with abilities such as sensing and perception, data processing and information fusion, intelligent decision making, autonomous control, learning and adaption, communications and computation, thus can achieve a high level of autonomy to perform missions without human intervention or can naturally interact and collaborate with humans and/or environment. the fundamental control theory and methods in autonomous intelligent systems are of central importance in orchestrating all related functions. autonomous control and intelligence can be applied to various systems, e.g., aerial vehicles, marine vehicles, ground robots, space exploration, energy and power systems, transportation and smart city, intelligent agriculture, smart manufacturing, smart health care systems, internet of things, etc.model predictive control (mpc)is a promising paradigm for high-performance and cost-effective control of autonomous intelligent systems. this talk will firstly summarize the major application requirements and challenges to innovate in designing, implementing, deploying and operating autonomous intelligent systems. further, the robust mpc and distributed mpc design framework will be presented. finally, the application of mpc algorithms to various autonomous intelligent systems will be illustrated.
