This paper presents trajectory tracking based on a sliding mode controller for the Puma robot manipulator. Puma is most commonly used in industries; it has great flexibility compared to other manipulators like SCARA, which decreases its precision. In order to increase the precision Sliding mode controller based on the Lyapunov stability approach is used in this work. The first motion control block for the sliding mode Controller is designed and link it with the Puma Robot manipulator in MATLAB Simulink. The Experiment Results for the effectiveness of this method are verified.
