Kinematic control design for wheeled mobile robots with longitudinal and lateral slip

by   Thiago B. Burghi, et al.

The motion control of wheeled mobile robots at high speeds under adverse ground conditions is a difficult task, since the robots' wheels may be subject to different kinds of slip. This work introduces an adaptive kinematic controller that is capable of solving the trajectory tracking problem of a nonholonomic mobile robot under longitudinal and lateral slip. While the controller can effectively compensate for the longitudinal slip, the lateral slip is a more involved problem to deal with, since nonholonomic robots cannot directly produce movement in the lateral direction. To show that the proposed controller is still able to make the mobile robot follow a reference trajectory under lateral and longitudinal time-varying slip, the solutions of the robot's position and orientation error dynamics are shown to be uniformly ultimately bounded. Numerical simulations are presented to illustrate the robot's performance using the proposed adaptive control law.
