This virtual lab contains interactive exercises to study the design of linear and adaptive model predictive controllers (MPCs) for implementing a vehicle steering control system.

The lab solutions are available upon instructor request. If you would like to request solutions, find an issue, or have a suggestion, contact us here.

Learning Goals

  • Model and simulate lateral vehicle dynamics
  • Design a linear MPC controller for the vehicle steering control system
  • Design an adaptive MPC controller for the vehicle steering control system
  • Bonus: Create custom trajectory and/or learn about methods for improved controllers

Setup

To get started with the MPC virtual lab, double-click the MPCVirtualLab.prj file inside MATLAB™. Then open up the MPC_virtual_lab.mlx live script, where you'll find the instructions for running the interactive exercises to complete the virtual lab.

Suggested Prework

  • MPC Tech Talks – help students gain insights into why engineers use Model Predictive Control, how they work, and the difference between linear and non-linear Model Predictive Control.
  • MATLAB Onramp – a free two-hour introductory tutorial that teaches the essentials of MATLAB.
  • Simulink Onramp – a free three-hour introductory tutorial that teaches the essentials of Simulink.
