A position control problem is presented in the paper. Different from other studies, the paper proposes a load mass and friction coefficient adaptive algorithm that can effectively replace these parameters which is hard to get accurately when the system is operating. The load’s mass information is
used for designing a control based on sliding mode control (SMC) that is better for robustness to system uncertainties and disturbances. The system performances with the designed control show good position tracking ability.
