The paper addresses the problem of efficiently controlling a class of single input multiple output (SIMO) underactuated robotic systems such as a two dimensional inverted pendulum cart or a two dimensional overhead crane. It is first proposed to employ the hierarchical sliding mode control approach to design a control law, which guarantees stability and anti-swing of the vehicle when it is driven on a predefined trajectory. More importantly, the unknown and uncertain parameters of the system caused by its actuator nonlinearity and external disturbances are adaptively estimated and inferred by the proposed fuzzy logic mechanism, which results in the efficient operation of the SIMO under-actuated system in real time. The proposed algorithm was then implemented in the synthetic environment, where the obtained results demonstrate its effectiveness.
