In this series of lectures we discuss the design of different control laws for large-scale, agent-based nonlinear systems arising in crowd motion, robotics, and social dynamics. The design of control signals is driven by the dynamical models under consideration, and its synthesis is analysed within a computational optimisation and control framework.
