In [3],[5] the notion of dynamical consistency was formulated for hybrid systems so as to define the set of dynamically consistent hybrid partition machines Mπ, π e П, associated with a given continuous system S. This theory includes the notions of a hybrid between-block (HBBC) and in-block controllable (HIBC) partition machine, the lattice HIBC(S) of (HIBC) partition machines, and that of the associated hierarchical-hybrid feedback control systems. In this paper, a brief summary of this theory…

In this paper a form of local accessibility for nonlinear control systems is introduced, called the continuous fountain condition. Subject to the condition that the states of a system are continuous
Embedded Optimal Control of Robot Manipulators with Passive Joints
This paper studies the optimal control problem for planar underactuated robot manipulators with two revolute joints and brakes at the unactuated joints in the presence of gravity. The presence of a
Analysis of Hierarchical Structures for Hybrid Control Systems
TLDR
High-level supervisor design can be performed on the basis of abstractions, hence it is possible to eliminate from the procedure of high- level supervisor design any operations that directly involve the plant behaviour any operations to high-level command signals.
Symbolic Feedback Control for Navigation
TLDR
The use of a symbolic control approach for mitigating the lack of a detailed map of the environment and for reducing the complexity associated with finding control laws which steer a control system between distant locations is explored.

On the structural complexity of the motion description language MDLe
TLDR
The goal of this paper is to define MDLe as a formal language, thereby connecting with the vast literature on the subject, and to stimulate experimental work.
