Stabilization for a chain of saturating integrators arising in the visual landing of aircraft with sampling
We provide a new output feedback control design for a chain of saturating integrators with imprecise output measurements where the outputs can also contain delays and sampling. Using a backstepping approach that leads to pointwise delays in the control and a dynamic extension, we prove input-to-state stability using a new dynamic extension approach. We utilize our main result to solve a problem in the visual landing of aircraft in the glide phase in the presence of delayed and sampled image processing.
