This paper proposes a control strategy for nonlinear constrained continuous-time uncertain systems which combines robust model predictive control (MPC) with sliding mode control (SMC). In particular, the so-called Integral SMC approach is used to produce a control action aimed to reduce the difference between the nominal predicted dynamics of the closed-loop system and the actual one. In this way, the MPC strategy can be designed on a system with a reduced uncertainty. In order to prove the stability of the overall control scheme, some general regional input-to-state practical stability results for continuous-time systems are proved.
