A design scheme of the finite-time tracking controller is given for the nonholonomic systems with extended chained form. The relay switching technique and the terminal sliding mode control scheme with finite-time convergence are used to the design of the controller. The global stability is guaranteed and the system states accurately track the states of the reference model in finite time. The simulation results for two physical models of a knife-edge and a wheeled mobile robot have demonstrated the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.
