Online Optimization with Feedback Delay and Nonlinear Switching Cost

no code implementations29 Oct 2021 Weici Pan, Guanya Shi, Yiheng Lin, Adam Wierman

We study a variant of online optimization in which the learner receives $k$-round $\textit{delayed feedback}$ about hitting cost and there is a multi-step nonlinear switching cost, i. e., costs depend on multiple previous actions in a nonlinear manner.

Robustness and Consistency in Linear Quadratic Control with Untrusted Predictions

no code implementations NeurIPS 2021 Tongxin Li, Ruixiao Yang, Guannan Qu, Guanya Shi, Chenkai Yu, Adam Wierman, Steven H. Low

Motivated by online learning methods, we design a self-tuning policy that adaptively learns the trust parameter $\lambda$ with a competitive ratio that depends on $\varepsilon$ and the variation of system perturbations and predictions.

Meta-Adaptive Nonlinear Control: Theory and Algorithms

1 code implementation NeurIPS 2021 Guanya Shi, Kamyar Azizzadenesheli, Michael O'Connell, Soon-Jo Chung, Yisong Yue

We provide instantiations of our approach under varying conditions, leading to the first non-asymptotic end-to-end convergence guarantee for multi-task nonlinear control.

Meta-Learning-Based Robust Adaptive Flight Control Under Uncertain Wind Conditions

no code implementations2 Mar 2021 Michael O'Connell, Guanya Shi, Xichen Shi, Soon-Jo Chung

We validate our approach by flying a drone in an open air wind tunnel under varying wind conditions and along challenging trajectories.


Neural-Swarm2: Planning and Control of Heterogeneous Multirotor Swarms using Learned Interactions

no code implementations10 Dec 2020 Guanya Shi, Wolfgang Hönig, Xichen Shi, Yisong Yue, Soon-Jo Chung

We present Neural-Swarm2, a learning-based method for motion planning and control that allows heterogeneous multirotors in a swarm to safely fly in close proximity.

The Power of Predictions in Online Control

no code implementations NeurIPS 2020 Chenkai Yu, Guanya Shi, Soon-Jo Chung, Yisong Yue, Adam Wierman

We study the impact of predictions in online Linear Quadratic Regulator control with both stochastic and adversarial disturbances in the dynamics.

Fast Uncertainty Quantification for Deep Object Pose Estimation

no code implementations16 Nov 2020 Guanya Shi, Yifeng Zhu, Jonathan Tremblay, Stan Birchfield, Fabio Ramos, Animashree Anandkumar, Yuke Zhu

Deep learning-based object pose estimators are often unreliable and overconfident especially when the input image is outside the training domain, for instance, with sim2real transfer.
