Abstract:

In the paper the stochastic optimal problem is considered for the case where the exact relationship between the observables and the state of the plant is unknown. Instead of assuming a known sensor structure, it is assumed that the unknown sensor is modeled as a communication channel which transmits information about the state to the controller at a fixed given information rate in the Shannon sense. This leads to a double minimization problem over the set of admissible controls and the set of admissible conditional probability density functions describing the sensor. Author
