Trajectory tracking control based on adaptive neural dynamics for four-wheel drive omnidirectional mobile robots
Keywords:four-wheel drive, omni-directional mobile robot, adaptive neural dynamics, trajectory tracking
AbstractThere is usually the speed jump problem existing in conventional back-stepping tracking control for four-wheel drive omni-directional mobile robots, a trajectory tracking controller based on adaptive neural dynamics model is proposed. Because of the smoothness and boundedness of the output from the neural dynamics model, it produces a gradually varying tracking speed instead of the jumping speed, and the parameters are designed to avoid the control values exceeding their limits. And then, a parameter adaptive controller is presented to improve control performance. Simulation results of different paths and comparison with the conventional back-stepping technique show that the approach is effective, and the system has a good performance with smooth output.
