Trajectory Control Using Linear Control System on Mobile Robot
A lot of studies have been conducted and published on how to control the wheeled mobile robot to reach the desired target smoothly and many simulation results have been presented. However, very few of the control theorems have been applied on a real mobile robot platform to test the feasibility. This paper focuses on the experimental validation by applying the kinematic model and the control law suggested by Siegwart et al  on a nonholonomic wheeled mobile robot. The omni-directional camera mounted on ceiling is used to capture the initial position of robot and monitor the trajectory. Our experiment results proved with the proposed control law, the mobile robot can reach the final goal and stop.
