Control Contraction Metrics on Finsler Manifolds

Thomas L. Chaffey, Ian R. Manchester

Control Contraction Metrics (CCMs) provide a nonlinear controller design involving an offline search for a Riemannian metric and an online search for a shortest path between the current and desired trajectories. In this paper, we generalize CCMs to Finsler geometry, allowing the use of non-Riemannian metrics. We provide open loop and sampled data controllers. The sampled data control construction presented here does not require real time computation of globally shortest paths, simplifying computation.
