Robust design of autonomous systems under uncertainty is an important yet challenging problem. This work proposes a robust controller that consists of a state estimator and a tube based predictive control law. The class of linear systems under ellipsoidal uncertainty is considered. In contrast to existing approaches based on polytopic sets, the constraint tightening is directly computed from the ellipsoidal sets of disturbances without over-approximation, thus leading to less conservative…

Homothetic Tube-Based Robust Economic MPC With Integrated Moving Horizon Estimation

The proposed method integrates a moving horizon estimator to achieve closed-loop stability and constraint satisfaction despite system disturbances and output measurement noise and shows that the designed optimization problem is recursively feasible and adoption of homothetic tubes leads to less conservative economic performance bounds.

DIRTREL: Robust Trajectory Optimization with Ellipsoidal Disturbances and LQR Feedback

A tractable robust optimization algorithm that combines direct transcription with linear-quadratic control design to reason about closed-loop responses to disturbances is derived, an extension of classical direct transcription that demonstrably improves tracking performance over non-robust formulations while incurring only a modest increase in computational cost.
