A Robust Sliding Mode Control with Different types of Inputs Applicable in Wheel-Slip Control for Vehicle Motion

Ritu Verma, Rinki Keswani


The robustness property of sliding mode controllers (SMC’s) makes them attractive for wheel-slip control for vehicle motion. The sliding mode approach is method which transforms a higher order system into first order system. In sliding mode controllers simple control algorithm can be applied, which is very straightforward and robust. In this paper we apply different types of standard inputs to the SMC based DC motor and observe the output which shows the robustness property of SMC. Sliding-Mode control (SMC) has been suggested for the control of systems with uncertain dynamics, nonlinearities and bounded input disturbances. SMC technique provides fast and accurate error convergence and strong robustness for the dynamic system.
