Abstract : "A feedback control law for orientation tracking problem of a mobile robot with N on-axle trailers is
proposed in this paper. Based on a recursive designing process, the orientation tracking problem is converted into
stabilizing the including angles on the designed reference value. The designing process of the control law is simple
and can be easily extended to any given N trailers system. With input-to-state stability on cascade form system, the
closed-loop system is proven to be asymptotically stable. Simulation experiment on a mobile robot with 4 trailers
is implemented and the results demonstrate that the proposed control law works successfully."
