In this chapter, we present a framework for online control customization that
makes use of finite-horizon, optimal control combined with real-time
trajectory generation and optimization. The results are based on a novel
formulation of receding-horizon optimal control that replaces the traditional
terminal constraints with a control Lyapunov function-based terminal cost.
This formulation leads to reduced computational requirements and allows proof
of stability under a variety of realistic assumptions on computation. By
combining these theoretical advances with advances in computational power for
real-time, embedded systems, we demonstrate the efficacy of online control
customization via optimization-based control. The results are demonstrated
using a nonlinear, flight control experiment at Caltech.
