This paper presents a new sliding mode adaptive controller for MEMS z-axis gyroscope. The proposed adaptive sliding mode control algorithm can on-line estimate the component of the angular velocity vector, which is orthogonal to the plane of oscillation of the gyroscope (the z-axis) and the linear damping and stiffness model coefficients. The stability of the closed-loop system can be guaranteed with the proposed control strategy. The numerical simulation for MEMS Gyroscope is investigated to verify the effectiveness of the proposed adaptive sliding mode control scheme. It is shown that the proposed adaptive sliding mode control scheme offers several advantages such as on-line estimation of gyroscope parameters including angular rate and large robustness to parameter variations and external disturbance.
