Approximation of reachable sets using optimal control algorithms

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We investigate and analyze a computational method for the approximation of reachable sets for nonlinear dynamic systems. The method uses grids to cover the region of interest and the distance function to the reachable set evaluated at grid points. A convergence analysis is provided and shows the convergence of three different types of discrete set approximations to the reachable set. The distance functions can be computed numerically by suitable optimal control problems in combination with direct discretization techniques which allows adaptive calculations of reachable sets. Several numerical examples with nonconvex reachable sets are presented.
