# Time-varying exponential stabilization of the position and attitude of an underactuated autonomous underwater vehicle

@article{Pettersen1999TimevaryingES, title={Time-varying exponential stabilization of the position and attitude of an underactuated autonomous underwater vehicle}, author={Kristin Ytterstad Pettersen and Olav Egeland}, journal={IEEE Trans. Autom. Control.}, year={1999}, volume={44}, pages={112-115} }

The paper considers feedback stabilization of the position and attitude of an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) with a reduced number of actuators. A nonlinear model describing both the dynamics and the kinematics of an AUV is studied. The paper shows that previous results on attitude stabilization of a spacecraft can be applied to exponentially stabilize both the position and attitude of an AUV using only four, possibly three, actuators. Simulation results are presented.
