Event description
Fundamental concepts in numerical optimization, trajectory optimization and model predictive control as a nonlinear program, CasADi toolbox

About this event

The workshop will start with some fundamental concepts in numerical optimization, such as quadratic and nonlinear programing, single/multiple shooting, etc.

Further, we provide an introduction to CasADi, an optimization framework suitable for many large scale of problems. Set of simple educational examples with increasing complexity have been prepared, so you can try and play with during the workshop.

This will help you to get a grasp on how some abstract concepts can be programmed and solved, even if you do not have a much prior experience about the topic.

We will also show some examples derived from real life applications, where you can use these techniques, including a trajectory optimization and a model predictive control.

We will also brief how optimal control can be used in the context of shared control.

Required knowledge and preparation for the workshop: We will use CasADi toolbox https://web.casadi.org/ It is a free toolbox. Please install and test 'hello world' examples prior to the workshop. In the workshop, we will provide our code examples in Python, and we will also provide support for Matlab users. Note, that it is also possible use CasADi with C++ but it is not covered in this workshop. We will provide the code examples before the workshop.

Speakers: Reza Ghabcheloo (TAU)

Assistant: Bharath Garigipati
