Paper Abstract

Sliding control offers a straightforward approach to robust control of nonlinear as well as linear systems. This control technique has been applied to a wide variety of hardware including robotic manipulators, electric motor drives, and automotive transmissions. This paper describes how the sliding control theory developed by Jean-Jacques Slotine can be applied to trajectory control of a single-axis steering mirror. An introduction to sliding control is presented along with an overview of the steps involved in creating the controller. Hardware is described and implementation issues are addressed.
