Sliding Mode Path Tracking Control for Automatic Steering of Vehicles 2001-01-3307
This paper studies the controller design for automatic steering of vehicles tracking a desired path. A nonlinear model with coupled inputs is considered and a suitable transformation is applied to deal with the nonlinearities. Nonlinear sliding surfaces are designed using Lyapunov approach to deal with the nonlinear effects. Simulation results are given to show that the designed controller is effective.
