Decentralized Control of Infinite Systems

Abstract : We propose algorithms for the synthesis of decentralized state-feedback controllers with partial observation of infinite state systems, which are modeled by Symbolic Transition Systems. We first consider the computation of safe controllers ensuring the avoidance of a set of forbidden states and then extend this result to the deadlock free case. The termination of the algorithms solving these problems is ensured by the use of abstract interpretation techniques, but at the price of overapproximations, in particular, in the computation of the states which must be avoided. We then extend our algorithms to the case where the system to be controlled is given by a collection of subsystems (modules). This structure is exploited to locally compute a controller for each module. Our tool SMACS gives an empirical evaluation of our methods by showing their feasibility, usability and efficiency.
