A scheme to solve the course keeping problem of the unmanned surface vehicle with nonlinear and uncertain characteristics and unknown external disturbances is investigated in this article. The chattering existing in global fast terminal sliding mode controller in solving the course keeping problem of the unmanned surface vehicle with external disturbance is analyzed. To reduce the chattering and eliminate the influence of the unknown disturbance, an adaptive global fast terminal sliding mode controller based on radial basis function neural network is developed. The equivalent control that usually requires a precise model information of the system is computed using the radial basis function neural network. The weights of the neural network are online adjusted according to the adaptive law that is derived using Lyapunov method to ensure the stability of the closed-loop system. Using the online learning of the neural network, the nonlinear uncertainty of the system and the unknown disturbance of external environment are compensated, and the system chattering is reduced effectively as well. The simulation results demonstrate that the proposed controller can achieve a good performance regarding the fast response and smooth control.
