SCONE Concepts

The whole thing.

Optimization

Typically, this is a CmaOptimizer or a CmaPoolOptimizer.

Objective

Typically, this is a SimulationObjective.

Model

A model, along with a simulation engine.

Controller

Controllers compute the input values of the model actuators. Controllers can either be feed-forward (also referred to as 'open loop') or feedback (also referred to as 'closed loop').

In SCONE, controllers consist of modular components that can be combined to perform complex behaviors.

Measure

Measures define the fitness or quality of a simulation. The goal of the optimizer is to minimize (or maximize, depending on the type) the measure.
