Abstract : "An approximation-based adaptive design problem for output-constrained tracking of a class of switched
pure-feedback nonlinear systems is investigated under arbitrary switchings. All switched nonlinearities are assumed
to be unknown. Contrary to the existing control results for uncertain switched pure-feedback nonlinear systems
where the number of the used function approximators should be equal to the order of the systems, an adaptive
control scheme based on only two neural networks is designed by using a system transformation and the common
Lyapunov function method, regardless of the order of the system. In the proposed controller, the output constraints
are used to establish designable time-varying bounds on the tracking performance. The stability and the constraint
satisfaction of the resulting closed-loop system are shown in the sense of Lyapunov stability criterion. Finally,
simulation examples are provided to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed methodology."
