English abstract:
We present a framework to synthesize control
policies for nonlinear dynamical systems from complex temporal
constraints specified in a rich temporal logic called
Signal Temporal Logic (STL). We propose a novel smooth
STL quantitative semantics called cumulative robustness, and
efficiently compute control policies through a series of smooth
optimization problems that are solved using gradient ascent
algorithms. Furthermore, we demonstrate how these techniques
can be incorporated in a model predictive control framework.
The advantages of combining the cumulative robustness
function with smooth optimization methods as well as model
predictive control are illustrated in case studies.
