Global synchromodal transportation is a promising strategy for providing efficient, reliable, flexible, and sustainable container shipping services across continents. It involves integrating multiple modes and routes owned by various operators to create a comprehensive transport plan. However, these operators often have their own local...

Artificial bee colony (ABC) is a prominent algorithm that offers great exploration capabilities among various meta-heuristic algorithms. However, its monotonous and one-dimensional search strategy limits its searching performance in the solving process. Thus, to address this issue, a Q-learning based multi-strategy integrated ABC algorithm ...

In this paper we investigate the controller placement problem on networks using controller reachability as the network performance metric. This metric is defined as the probability that each node can reach at least one controller, given that each link is operational with a fixed probability. By exploring placements for more than 100 real-world...

A fundamental open problem in monotone game theory is the computation of a specific generalized Nash equilibrium (GNE) among all the available ones, e.g. the optimal equilibrium with respect to a system-level objective. The existing GNE seeking algorithms have in fact convergence guarantees toward an arbitrary, possibly inefficient,...

This paper studies the multi-robot task assignment problem in which a fleet of dispersed robots needs to efficiently transport a set of dynamically appearing packages from their initial locations to corresponding destinations within prescribed time-windows. Each robot can carry multiple packages simultaneously within its capacity. Given a...

In the past few years, online convex optimization (OCO) has received notable attention in the control literature thanks to its flexible real-time nature and powerful performance guarantees. In this article, we propose new step-size rules and OCO algorithms that simultaneously exploit gradient predictions, function predictions and dynamics,...

Finding strongly connected components (SCCs) and the diameter of a directed network play a key role in a variety of machine learning and control theory problems. In this article, we provide for the first time a scalable distributed solution for these two problems by leveraging dynamical consensus-like protocols to find the SCCs. The proposed...

The autonomous vehicle is widely applied in various ground operations, in which motion planning and tracking control are becoming the key technologies to achieve autonomous driving. In order to further improve the performance of motion planning and tracking control, an efficient hierarchical framework containing motion planning and tracking...

Identifiability of linear dynamic networks requires the presence of a sufficient number of external excitation signals. The problem of allocating a minimal number of external signals for guaranteeing generic network identifiability in the full measurement case has been recently addressed in the literature. Here we will extend that work by...

In this paper we study the multi-robot task assignment problem with tasks that appear online and need to be serviced within a fixed time window in an uncertain environment. For example, when deployed in dynamic, human-centered environments, the team of robots may not have perfect information about the environment. Parts of the environment may...

The free energy principle from neuroscience provides a brain-inspired perception scheme through a data-driven model learning algorithm called Dynamic Expectation Maximization (DEM). This paper aims at introducing an exper-imental design to provide the first experimental confirmation of the usefulness of DEM as a state and input estimator for...

Distributed model predictive control (DMPC) concerns how to online control multiple robotic systems with constraints effectively. However, the nonlinearity, nonconvexity, and strong interconnections of dynamic system models and constraints can make the real-time and real-world DMPC implementations nontrivial. Reinforcement learning (RL)...

Implementing dynamic legged locomotion entails stabilizing oscillatory behaviors in complex mechanical systems. Whenever possible, locomotion algorithms should also exploit the improved capabilities of elastic elements added to the structure to improve efficiency and robustness. This work aims to shed some light on implementing generic dynamic...

This article investigates the distributed time-varying optimization problem for second-order multiagent systems (MASs) under limited interaction ranges. The goal is to seek the minimum of the sum of local time-varying cost functions (CFs), where each CF is only available to the corresponding agent. Limited communication range refers to the...

Railways are a well-recognized sustainable transportation mode that helps to satisfy the continuously growing mobility demand. However, the management of railway traffic in large-scale networks is a challenging task, especially when both a major disruption and various disturbances occur simultaneously. We propose an automatic rescheduling...

The qubit-mapping problem aims to assign and route qubits of a quantum circuit onto an noisy intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) device in an optimized fashion, with respect to some cost function. Finding an optimal solution to this problem is known to scale exponentially in computational complexity; as such, it is imperative to investigate...

Unexpected disruptions commonly occur in the railway network, causing delays, and extra cost for operators and inconvenience for passengers by missing their connection and facing overcrowded trains. This paper presents a passenger-centric approach for timetable rescheduling in case of disruption. We study a railway system in which passengers...

Hinterland intermodal transportation is the movement of containers between deep-sea ports and inland terminals by using trucks, trains, barges, or any combination of them. Synchromodal transportation, as an extension of intermodal transportation, refers to transport systems with dynamic updating of plans by incorporating real-time information...
