High-order sliding-mode (HOSM) control is called quasi-continuous (QC), if it remains continuous everywhere except the HOSM set, where the sliding variables and their derivatives vanish. Such sliding-mode (SM) control features less chattering. Homogeneous QC SM control is designed for the general uncertain multi-input multi-output case and provides any predefined control smoothness level outside of the HOSM set.
