Auxiliary-Variable Adaptive Control Lyapunov Barrier Functions for Spatio-Temporally Constrained Safety-Critical Applications

Recent work has shown that stabilizing an affine control system while optimizing a quadratic cost subject to state and control constraints can be mapped to a sequence of Quadratic Programs (QPs) using Control Barrier Functions (CBFs) and Control Lyapunov Functions (CLFs). One of the main challenges in this method is that the QPs could easily become infeasible under safety and spatio-temporal constraints with tight control bounds. In our own recent work, we defined Auxiliary-Variable Adaptive CBFs (AVCBFs) to improve the feasibility of the CBF-based QP, while avoiding extensive parameter tuning. In this paper, we consider spatio-temporal constraints as finite-time reachability requirements. In order to satisfy these requirements, we generalize AVCBFs to Auxiliary-Variable Adaptive Control Lyapunov Barrier Functions (AVCLBFs) that work for systems and constraints with arbitrary relative degrees. We show that our method has fewer conflicts with safety and input constraints, and outperforms the state of the art in term of adaptivity and feasibility in solving the QP. We illustrate our approach on an optimal control problem for a unicycle.
