This paper proposes a new sliding-surface-based tracking control system for nonholonomic mobile robots with disturbance. To design a robust controller, we consider the kinematic model and the dynamic model of mobile robots with disturbance. We also propose a new sliding surface to solve the problem of previous study. That is, since the new sliding surface is composed of differentiable functions unlike the previous study, we can obtain the control law for arbitrary trajectories without any constraints. From the Lyapunov stability theory, we prove that the position tracking errors and the heading direction error converge to zero. Finally, we perform the computer simulations to demonstrate the performance of the proposed control system.
