This paper presents a novel sequential inverse optimal control (SIOC) method for discrete-time systems, which calculates the unknown weight vectors of the cost function in real time using the input and output of an optimally controlled discrete-time system. The proposed method overcomes the limitations of previous approaches by eliminating the...

Low-light images suffer from low quality due to poor lighting conditions, noise pollution, and improper settings of cameras. To enhance low-light images, most existing methods rely on normal-light images for guidance but the collection of suitable normal-light images is difficult. In contrast, a self-supervised method breaks free from the reliance...

This article studies the adaptive optimal output regulation problem for a class of interconnected singularly perturbed systems (SPSs) with unknown dynamics based on reinforcement learning (RL). Taking into account the slow and fast characteristics among system states, the interconnected SPS is decomposed into the slow time-scale dynamics and the fast...

The copper disc casting machine is core equipment for producing copper anode plates in the copper metallurgy industry. The copper disc casting machine casting package motion curve (CPMC) is significant for precise casting and efficient production. However, the lack of exact casting modeling and real-time simulation information severely restricts dynamic...

This work proposes an event-triggered adaptive control approach for a class of uncertain nonlinear systems under irregular constraints. Unlike the constraints considered in most existing papers, here the external irregular constraints are considered and a constraints switching mechanism (CSM) is introduced to circumvent the difficulties arising from irregular output constraints....

In order to address the output feedback issue for linear discrete-time systems, this work suggests a brand-new adaptive dynamic programming (ADP) technique based on the internal model principle (IMP). The proposed method, termed as IMP-ADP, does not require complete state feedback-merely the measurement of input and output data. More specifically,...

Reinforcement learning (RL) has roots in dynamic programming and it is called adaptive/approximate dynamic programming (ADP) within the control community. This paper reviews recent developments in ADP along with RL and its applications to various advanced control fields. First, the background of the development of ADP is described, emphasizing the...

Inspired by the integrated guidance and control design for endo-atmospheric aircraft, the integrated position and attitude control of spacecraft has attracted increasing attention and gradually induced a wide variety of study results in last over two decades, fully incorporating control requirements and actuator characteristics of space missions. This paper presents...

With the maturation of autonomous driving technology, the use of autonomous vehicles in a socially acceptable manner has become a growing demand of the public. Human-like autonomous driving is expected due to the impact of the differences between autonomous vehicles and human drivers on safety. Although human-like decision-making has become...

The blockchain cross-chain is a significant technology for inter-chain interconnection and value transfer among different blockchain networks. Cross-chain overcomes the “information island” problem of the closed blockchain network and is increasingly applied to multiple critical areas such as finance and the internet of things (IoT). Blockchain can be divided into...
