Smooth, time‐invariant regulation of nonholonomic systems via energy pumping‐and‐damping

Abstract : In this article we propose an energy pumping-and-damping technique to regulate nonholonomic systems described by kinematic models. The controller design follows the widely popular interconnection and damping assignment passivity-based methodology, with the free matrices partially structured. Two asymptotic regulation objectives are considered: drive to zero the state or drive the systems total energy to a desired constant value. In both cases, the control laws are smooth, time-invariant, state-feedbacks. For the nonholonomic integrator we give an almost global solution for both problems, with the objectives ensured for all system initial conditions starting outside a set that has zero Lebesgue measure and is nowhere dense. For the general case of higher order nonholonomic systems in chained form, a local convergence result is given. Simulation results comparing the performance of the proposed controller with other existing designs are also provided.
