In this paper, we propose two hybrid feedbacks based on “synergistic” potential functions to achieve robust global asymptotic tracking of rigid-body attitude, a task that is impossible by classical state feedback-be it smooth, nonsmooth, or periodic-due to the topological structure of the special orthogonal group. Both hybrid feedbacks are based upon a proportional-derivative structure where the proportional term is generated from a finite family of control-induced artificial potential energies… CONTINUE READING
