I am working with a project in which i am using MPC to control my robot. I wish to know why do we provide future references to MPC to predict the future( in Simulink ) as explained in the Autonomous steering control example at mathworks website.
I am not able to understand this concept of previewing. Doesn't MPC should predict the future itself by once using one reference signal ?? But in previewing we are using set of future references to predict future in simulink.
Can someone help in explaining this concept?
