A model-free continuous velocity observer formulation with self-tuning for mechatronic systems
MetadataShow full item record
In this study, the design of a smooth robust velocity observer for a class of uncertain nonlinear mechatronic systems is presented. The proposed velocity observer does not require a priori knowledge of the upper bounds of the uncertain system dynamics and introduces time-varying observer gains for uncertainty compensation. Practical stability of the velocity observation error is ensured via Lyapunov-type stability analysis. Experimental results obtained from Phantom Omni haptic device are presented to illustrate the performance of the proposed velocity observer.
