Motivated by large-scale but computationally constrained settings, e.g., the Internet of Things, we present a novel data-driven distributed control algorithm that is synthesized directly from trajectory data. Our method, data-driven Distributed and Localized Model Predictive Control (D³LMPC), builds upon the data-driven System Level Synthesis (SLS) framework, which allows one to parameterize closed-loop system responses directly from collected open-loop trajectories. The resulting model-predictive controller can be implemented with distributed computation and only local information sharing. By imposing locality constraints on the system response, we show that the amount of data needed for our synthesis problem is independent of the size of the global system. Moreover, we show that our algorithm enjoys theoretical guarantees for recursive feasibility and asymptotic stability. Finally, we also demonstrate the optimality and scalability of our algorithm in a simulation experiment.
