Abstract (1): In the field of quadrotor control, there is a growing recognition of the need for achieving constraint satisfaction and optimal performance simultaneously. While model predictive control (MPC) is a promising approach, its sensitivity to model uncertainties and large computational demands pose challenges for its application in quadrotor systems requiring rapid update rates, particularly those with potential actuator failures. This talk will introduce an efficient solution: a dual-rate hierarchical adaptive Lyapunov-based MPC framework, designed for trajectory tracking control of quadrotors with unknown actuator faults. The dual-rate dual-loop architecture effectively reduces the computational burden without sacrificing control accuracy by sampling the outer-loop at a slower rate than the inner-loop, making it more practical for real-world applications. Additionally, the incorporated adaptive mechanism enables the quadrotor to compensate for unexpected actuator faults, ensuring stability and precise trajectory tracking.
(2) Introduce scientific paper writing skills and make discussions with Master and Ph. D students and young teachers about how to write responses to Reviews, etc.
