Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper is concerned with the supervisory target control problem for hybrid systems modeled by hybrid automata. The problem is studied in a straightforward manner through reachability analysis. A switching controller is proposed such that all the trajectories of the controlled automaton, that initiate from a given initial set in the state space, reach a target set. At the same time a cost function, specified by weighting the discrete-event transitions of the automaton, is minimized. Emphasis is given to the control synthesis under event uncertainty modeled by uncontrollable transitions.
