Learning-Based Control

Learn about model-free adaptive control methods, including extremum seeking and model reference adaptive control. You’ll see how these algorithms work, their overall benefits and drawbacks.

You’ll also explore constraint enforcement, which is important for learning-based systems that are deployed in safety-critical applications. Constraint enforcement ensures that any action requested by the controller does not result in the system exceeding a safety bound. 

What is Extremum Seeking Control Get an introduction to an adaptive control method called extremum seeking control. You’ll see how to build the algorithm one component at a time in Simulink to highlight the benefits and drawbacks of this method.

Constraint Enforcement for Improved Safety Learn about enforcing systems constraints, which are essential for learning-based systems in safety-critical applications. These constraints ensure that any control actions you not result in the system exceeding a safety bound.

Adaptive Control Basics: What Is Model Reference Adaptive Control? See how an adaptive control method called model reference adaptive control (MRAC) can adapt in real time to variations and uncertainty in the system that is being controlled.
