This paper presents an approach for designing path-following controllers for the kinematic model of car-like mobile robots using transverse feedback linearization with dynamic extension. This approach is applicable to a large class of paths and its effectiveness is experimentally demonstrated on a Chameleon R100 Ackermann steering robot. Transverse feedback linearization makes the desired path attractive and invariant, while the dynamic extension allows the closed-loop system to achieve the desired motion along the path.
