Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Symmetry is a widely used concept in physics and mathematics, characterized by many special properties. The application of symmetry in control systems can help us design more stable and efficient control algorithms to achieve more accurate control. In symmetry and control theory, we study how to understand the symmetry of physical systems and apply it to control system design. By analyzing the symmetry of physical systems, we can obtain important information about system performance and make control design simpler and more intuitive. The applications of symmetry and control theory are extensive, including robots, airplanes, automation control, and other fields. In summary, research on symmetry and control theory provides new tools and methods for control systems. The application of symmetry can help us design more effective control algorithms and improve system performance, and it has wide application prospects in engineering practice.

In this work, an improved symmetric integral barrier function-based tracking control is addressed for a robotic manipulator in the presence of position error performance requirements and unknown uncertain terms. First of all, we construct an improved symmetric time-variant integral barrier function to solve the robotic system’s constrained requirements. The novel barrier function is constructed by developing an integral upper limit function that can be used in conjunction with existing performance envelope functions. Then, the equivalent conversion error is taken as the upper limit of the integral function to achieve the specified steady-state as well as transient behaviors of the system. Additionally, a disturbance observer based on the velocity tracking error is introduced to compensate for unknown uncertain terms. In the end, a numeral simulation study on a robot with two degrees is performed to indicate that the present scheme is feasible in handling the performance constraint and uncertain terms.
