Two related problems are treated in continuous time. First, the state agreement problem is studied for coupled nonlinear differential equations. The vector fields can switch within a finite family.â€¦ (More)

Approximator-based control, primarily using neural networks and/or fuzzy systems as the main tool for function approximation, had been regarded as non-rigorous, but sold under the fashionable name ofâ€¦ (More)

The feasibility problem is studied of achieving a specified formation among a group of autonomous unicycles by local distributed control. The directed graph defined by the information flow plays aâ€¦ (More)

This article presents a solution to the path following problem for the planar vertical take-off and landing aircraft (PVTOL) which is applicable to a class of smooth Jordan curves. Our path followingâ€¦ (More)

This article presents an approach to path following control design based on transverse feedback linearization. A “transversal” controller is designed to drive the output of the plant toâ€¦ (More)

We study the problem of controlling the position of a platen levitated using linear motors in threedimensional space. We develop a nonlinear six-state model of the system and provide two nonlinearâ€¦ (More)

This paper investigates virtual holonomic constraints for Euler-Lagrange systems with n degreesof-freedom and nâˆ’ 1 controls. In our framework, a virtual holonomic constraint is a relation specifyingâ€¦ (More)

This paper introduces a new approach to output feedback stabilization of SISO systems which, unlike other techniques found in the literature, does not use quasi-linear high-gain observers and controlâ€¦ (More)

We introduce a new output feedback controller for general MIMO nonlinear systems which are only observable on regions of the state and input spaces. Unlike previous approaches, we do not addâ€¦ (More)

The problem of controlling surge and stall in jet engine compressors is of fundamental importance in preventing damage and lengthening the life of these components. In this theoretical study, weâ€¦ (More)
