Sliding Mode Control of Mechanical Systems Actuated by Shape Memory Alloy.

This paper presents a model-based sliding mode control law for mechanical systems, which use shape memory alloys (SMAs) as actuators. The systems under consideration are assumed to be fully actuated and represented by unconstrained equations of motion. A system model is developed by combining the eq...
