Abstract

A mechanical system consisting of a hoop and a pole is considered, for which the corresponding dynamic model represents an underactuated system subject to second-order nonholonomic constraints. The pursued goal is to simultaneously track a trajectory in the unactuated coordinates and to stabilize the actuated ones. For the model under consideration, the well-known noncollocated partial feedback linearization algorithm fails since the corresponding zero dynamics is unstable. In this work, we show that the actuated coordinates, i.e., the pole can be stabilized by exploiting the null space of the coupling inertia matrix without affecting the performance in the underactuated coordinates tracking. We present a formal mathematical analysis, which guarantees ultimate boundedness of all coordinates. Performed simulations bolster the proposed approach.
