The Bocop project aims to develop an open-source toolbox for solving optimal control problems, with collaborations with industrial and academic partners. Optimal control (optimization of dynamical systems governed by differential equations) has numerous applications in transportation, energy, process optimization, and biology. This project is supported by INRIA in the framework of an ADT, Action de Développement Technologique, 2010-2012.

The software uses some packages from the COIN-OR library, in particular the well-known interior-point nonlinear programming solver Ipopt. It also features a user-friendly interface in Scilab.
