This paper presents, in detail, the implementation of a new control strategy, Kalman-based active observer controller (AOB), for the path following of wheeled mobile robots (WMRs) subject to nonholonomic constraints. This control strategy presents some particularities as being used in discrete mode, and being robust against uncertainties and disturbances such as the ones due to the use of the input-output feedback-linearization method in discrete mode, while it was developed to be used in continuous mode. The performance of the proposed control algorithm is verified via computer simulation, and is compared with other control strategies, such as pole placement controller (PPC) and PPC with a Kalman filter observer (CKF).
