Murray-Smith, R., Sbarbaro, D., Rasmussen, C.E. and Girard, A. (2003) Adaptive, cautious, predictive control with Gaussian process priors. In: 13th IFAC Symposium on System Identification, Rotterdam, Netherlands, 27-29 August 2003, pp. 1195-1200. ISBN 0080437095




Nonparametric Gaussian Process models, a Bayesian statistics approach, are used to implement a nonlinear adaptive control law. Predictions, including propagation of the state uncertainty are made over a k-step horizon. The expected value of a quadratic cost function is minimised, over this prediction horizon, without ignoring the variance of the model predictions. The general method and its main features are illustrated on a simulation example.
