OpEn: Code Generation for Embedded Nonconvex Optimization

02/29/2020 ∙ by Pantelis Sopasakis, et al. ∙ 0

We present Optimization Engine (OpEn): an open-source code generation tool for real-time embedded nonconvex optimization, which implements a novel numerical method. OpEn combines the proximal averaged Newton-type method for optimal control (PANOC) with the penalty and augmented Lagrangian methods to compute approximate stationary points of nonconvex problems. The proposed method involves very simple algebraic operations such as vector products, has a low memory footprint and exhibits very good convergence properties that allow the solution of nonconvex problems on embedded devices. OpEn's core solver is written is Rust - a modern, high-performance, memory-safe and thread-safe systems programming language - while users can call it from Python, MATLAB, C, C++ or over a TCP socket.
