By the use of the backstepping sliding mode control (BSSMC) method, the proposed algorithm first allows the manipulators to be able to robustly track the desired trajectories. Furthermore, due to the nonlinear, uncertain and unmodeled dynamics of the dual-arm robot, it is proposed to employ the radial basis function network (RBFN) to adaptively estimate the robot’s dynamic model. Though the estimation of the dynamics is approximate, the adaptation law is derived from the Lyapunov theory, which provides the controller with ability to guarantee stability of the whole system in spite of its nonlinearities, parameter uncertainties and external load variations. The effectiveness of the proposed RBFN–BSSMC approach is demonstrated by implementation in a simulation environment with realistic parameters, where the obtained results are highly promising.
