Distributed model predictive control -- An overview and roadmap of future research opportunities


"This is a position article on the current state of the art in distributed Model Predictive Control (MPC) and our view on its future potential. We present results from a recent survey of 35 distributed MPC approaches. For this, we propose a way in which distributed MPC approaches can be categorized for comparison. We also link the potential that these approaches have to the domain of other fields s..." [More...]

Fast ADMM for distributed model predictive control of cooperative Waterborne AGVs


"This article proposes a distributed predictive path following controller with arrival time awareness for multiple waterborne AGVs applied to Inter Terminal Transport (ITT). The goal is to design an efficient cooperative distributed algorithm that solves local problems in parallel and minimizes an overall objective. We model the ITT problem using waterborne AGVs with independent dynamics and object..." [More...]

Towards quality-aware control of perishable goods in synchromodal transport networks


"Innovative technological developments are leading to smart ways for producing food more efficiently and of higher quality. Nevertheless, lots of perishable goods are wasted because of inefficiencies during the subsequent transport process. The amount of wastage could be reduced via better planning and control of transport activities. Perishable goods logistics can be better supported by real-time ..." [More...]

Closed-loop coordination of inland vessels operations in large seaports using hybrid logic-based Benders decomposition


"This paper addresses two coordination problems that exist in the waterborne transport in large seaports, the long time of stay of inland vessels and insufficient terminal and quay crane planning with respect to their sailing schedules. A novel coordination model is proposed and tackled using logic-based Benders decomposition and Large Neighborhood Search. In addition, a closed-loop perspective is ..." [More...]

Design and control of hybrid power and propulsion systems for smart ships: A review of developments


"Power and propulsion of ships need to reduce fuel consumption and increase versatility. This paper classifies ship propulsion topologies into mechanical, electrical and hybrid propulsion, and power supply topologies into combustion, electrochemical, stored and hybrid power supply. We review opportunities and challenges of hybrid architectures and advanced control strategies that can reduce fuel c..." [More...]
