Path following and stabilization of underactuated surface ships based on hierarchical sliding mode


A robust control algorithm for path following and stabilization of an underactuated surface vessel is proposed in this paper. Since the sway motion of the vessel is not directly actuated, the hierarchical sliding mode is employed. Various simulations were carried out to validate the effectiveness of the proposed controller. The stability of closed-loop… (More)
