This paper presents an adaptive fuzzy sliding mode control design for a class of uncertain horizontal platform systems (HPSs). Firstly, a nonsingular terminal sliding surface is proposed for HPSs. Then, a fuzzy logic system is introduced to estimate the system uncertainties. The adaptive fuzzy sliding mode controller can guarantee the stability of the closed-loop system. The corresponding numerical simulations are demonstrated to verify the effectiveness of the proposed method.
