|Abstract:||This paper presents a review of sliding mode control for autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs). The AUVs are used under water operating in the presence of uncertainties (due to hydrodynamics coefficients) and external disturbances (due to water currents, waves, etc.). Sliding mode controller is one of the nonlinear robust controllers which is robust towards uncertainties, parameter variations and external disturbances. The evolution of sliding mode control in motion control studies of autonomous underwater vehicles is summarized throughout for the last three decades. The performance of the controller is examined based on the chattering reduction, accuracy (steady state error reduction), and robustness against perturbation. The review on sliding mode control for AUVs provides insights for readers to design new techniques and algorithms, to enhance the existing family of sliding mode control strategies into a new one or to merge and re-supervise the control techniques with other control strategies, in which, the aim is to obtain good controller design for AUVs in terms of great performance, stability and robustness.|
