In mechanical systems involving low-speed motion, consisting of a succession of jumps and stops, as in trained wagons or manipulated robots, control usually exhibits error when the static friction force exceeds the dynamic friction force in what is known as the stick-slip effect. We developed a nonlinear observer to determine the friction force of contact during motion and to compensate for its effect. Simulation and experimental results show global convergence to equilibrium and good performance by the adaptive controller.
