This paper presents an application of recently proposed robust integral of the sign of the error (RISE) feedback control scheme for a three degrees-of-freedom (DOF) robot manipulator tracking problem. This method compensates for nonlinear disturbances and uncertainties in the dynamic model, and results in asymptotic trajectory tracking. To avoid selecting parameters of the RISE controller by time-consuming trial and error method, particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm is employed. The objective of the PSO algorithm is to find a set of parameters that minimizes the mean of root squared error as the fitness function. The proposed method attains tracking goal, without any chattering in control input. Indeed, the existence of a unique integral sign term in the RISE controller avoids the occurrence of chattering phenomenon that usually happens in sliding mode controllers. Numerical simulations demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed control scheme.
