In this paper, a model predictive path integral control algorithm based on a generalized importance sampling scheme is developed and parallel optimization via sampling is performed using a graphics processing unit. eligible for path integral control, which makes this approach a model-based approach, although model-free variants can be considered, too, as long as the control system is known to belong to the appropriate class of models. path integral formulation for the general class of systems with state dimensionality that is higher than the dimensionality of the controls.

Finally, while we focus on finite horizon problems, path integral formulations for discounted and av-erage cost infinite horizon problems have been proposed by [Todorov, 2009], as well as by [Broek et al., 2010] for risk sensitive control. Motivated by its computational efficiency, we extend this framework to account for systems evolving on Lie groups. Relative Entropy and Free Energy Dualities: Connections to Path Integral and KL control Evangelos A. Theodorou 1and Emanuel Todorov;2 Abstract—This paper integrates recent work on Path Integral (PI) and Kullback Leibler (KL) divergence stochastic optimal control theory with earlier work on risk sensitivity and the fundamental dualities between free energy and relative entropy. In Path Integral control problems a representation of an optimally controlled dynamical system can be formally computed and serve as a guidepost to learn a parametrized policy. For more interesting views and different derivations of PI control, we would refer the reader to [3] and references therein. Path integrals have been recently used for the problem of nonlinear stochastic filtering. The audience is mainly rst-year graduate students, and it is assumed that the reader has a good … generalized the path integral control framework such that it could be applied to stochastic dynamics with state dependent control transition and di usion matrices, while we have made use of the Feynman Kac lemma to approx-imate solution of the resulting linear PDE. Abstract: Path Integral control theory yields a sampling-based methodology for solving stochastic optimal control problems. The path-integral control framework is generalized to compute a team solution to a two-player route selection problem where two ride-hailing companies collaborate on a shared transportation infrastructure. Advanced estimation techniques, such as importance sam-pling, can be applied to effectively solve the aforementioned transformed problem of a LSOC. Model Predictive Path Integral Control Framework for Partially Observable Navigation: A Quadrotor Case Study Ihab S. Mohamed 1and Guillaume Allibert 2 and Philippe Martinet Abstract Recently, Model Predictive Path Integral (MPPI) control algorithm has been extensively applied to autonomous navigation tasks, where the cost map is mostly assumed to be known and the 2D navigation tasks are … Member. The Path Integral Cross-Entropy (PICE) method tries to exploit this, but is hampered by poor sample efficiency. Abstract—Path integral methods [7], [15],[1] have recently been shown to be applicable to a very general class of optimal control problems. Graduate School of Engineering, Osaka University, 2‐1, Yamadaoka, Suita, Osaka, 565‐0871 Japan. Here we provide the information theoretic view of path integral control and show its connection to mathematical de-velopments in control theory. Here we examine the path integral formalism from a decision-theoretic point of view, since an optimal controller can always be regarded as an instance of a perfectly rational decision-maker that chooses its actions so as to maximize its expected utility.
