Tracking control of mobile robots -- a new approach

Date: 17 June 2010

Time: 3:00pm

Venue: T1535, Singapore Polytechnic

 

The presentation will describe a Lyapunov based control scheme for a mobile robot to track a moving target. The target’s velocity as well as its position relative to the robot is considered in system modelling. Their effects on the robot’s manoeuvre is analysed, and several methods are proposed to moderate the magnitude and the fluctuation of the control effort (robot velocity) in the controller design. Simulation and experimental results will be provided to verify the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
