Within this work, we compute and apply control strategies for the time-minimal path of a slot car racer. Here, the DMOC (Discrete Mechanics and Optimal Control) method is used to generate offline optimal trajectories for the electro-mechanically coupled system, i.e. sequences of discrete configurations and driving voltages. These sequences are embedded to a control architecture with an underling camera tracking system which allows to correct the vehicle towards the desired state via computer.
