Mesh Exponential Stability of Look-Ahead Interconnected System
Mesh stability is the property of damping or eliminating disturbances as they travel in an interconnected system. In this paper, the mesh stability of a class of look-ahead vehicle following system is studied under the assumption that the all isolated subsystems are exponentially stable. Via idea of vector Lyapunov function theory and by using of Cauchy inequality technique, the sufficient condition to ensure the global mesh exponential stability is obtained. The obtained condition which shows the relationship and domain of the parameters is convenient to apply to design controller in practice.
