I believe the issue is because the order of your function outputs is not correct. The first output of your function needs to be the solution, u1. Try reversing the order of your output arguments.
x0=[0 0 0 0 0 0 ];
xOptSim=fminsearch(@robot,x0);
car_sys = 500 s + 12500 ----------------------- 200 s^2 + 500 s + 12500 Continuous-time transfer function.
Warning: Ignoring extra legend entries.
Unable to perform assignment because the size of the left side is 1-by-1 and the size of the right side is 1-by-10001.

The new error is because your solution vector, u1, is not the same size as x0. One thing to look into is why you are not using your X values in your function.
