General Information

Optimization based approaches play an important role in many SPP 1305 projects. Typical tasks are, e.g., the calculation of optimal input sequences in predictive control schemes, optimization based state estimation for networked and decentralized systems, the calculation of reachability sets, or the design of feedback strategies minimizing the information flow over a digital network connecting different components of the system.

The objective of this working meeting is to bring together people that employ optimization based estimation and control approaches in networked and decentralized settings. Its aim is to compare possibilities and limitations of different approaches as well as to present the used software and tools. There will be plenty of time for discussion of results and open problems. As a guest Prof. Riccardo Scattolini (Politecnico di Milano) will present results related to "Distributed state estimation with moving horizon observers".
