Nonlinear Control of Vehicles and Robots

Tracking of autonomous vehicles and the high-precision positioning of robotic manipulators require advanced modeling techniques and control algorithms. Controller design should take into account any model nonlinearities. Nonlinear Control of Vehicles and Robots develops a unified approach to the dyn...
