In this article we consider tracking a maneuvering target with a non-holonomic agent. The target and the agent move in 2-dimensional space. The task is to capture/intercept the moving target using a continuous time control scheme based on artificial potentials and the sliding mode control technique. The effectiveness of the proposed control scheme is established analytically and demonstrated via a set of simulation results. © 2008 IEEE.
