We study adaptive control and parameter identification for robotic curve tracking under unknown control gains. We build adaptive controllers that identify the unknown control gains and stabilize equilibria corresponding to a fixed constant distance to the curve and zero bearing. Our strict Lyapunov function method allows us to prove robust performance under actuator errors in terms of integral input-to-state stability under a bound on the disturbance that maintains forward invariance of a class of invariant hexagons. This extends existing curve tracking results to allow controller uncertainty and parameter identification. We demonstrate our work in simulations. © 2012 AACC American Automatic Control Council).
