Masoud, A.A. (2005) A Hybrid, PDE-ODE Controller for Intercepting an Intelligent, Well-informed Target in a Stationary, Cluttered Environment. Decision and Control, 2005 and 2005 European Control Conference. CDC-ECC '05. 44th IEEE conference, 1.
A new class of intelligent controllers that can semantically embed an agent in a spatial context constraining its behavior in a goal-oriented manner was suggested in [1,11]. A controller of such a class can guide an agent in a stationary unknown environment to a fixed target zone along an obstacle-free trajectory. Here, an extension is suggested that would enable the interception of an intelligent target that is maneuvering to evade capture amidst stationary clutter (i.e. the target zone is moving). This is achieved by forcing the differential properties of the potential field used to induce the control action to satisfy the wave equation. Theoretical developments, as well as, proofs of the ability of the modified control to intercept the target along an obstacle-free trajectory are supplied. Simulation results are also provided.
