Abstract: This paper investigates an Adaptive Fuzzy Gains-Scheduling Integral Sliding Mode Controller (AFGS-ISMC) design approach to deal with the attitude and altitude stabilization problem of an Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) precisely of a quadrotor. The Integral Sliding Mode Control (ISMC) seems to be an adequate control tool to remedy this problem. The selection of the controller parameters is done most of the time using repetitive trials-errors based methods. This method is not completely reliable and becomes a time-consuming and difficult task. Here we propose the tuning and selection of all ISMC gains adaptively according to a fuzzy supervisor. The sliding surface and its differential are declared as Fuzzy Logic Supervisor (FLS) inputs and the integral sliding mode control gains as the FLS outputs. The proposed fuzzy-based supervision mechanisms modify all ISMC gains to be time-varying and further enhance the performance and robustness of the obtained adaptive nonlinear controllers against uncertainties and external disturbances. The proposed adaptive fuzzy technique increases the effectiveness of the ISMC structure compared to the classical SMC strategy and excludes the dull and repetitive trials-errors process for its design and tuning. Various simulations have been carried out and followed by comparison and discussion of the results in order to prove the superiority of the suggested fuzzy gains-scheduled ISMC approach for the quadrotor attitude and altitude flight stabilization.
