An adaptive neural network controller has been developed for a model of an underwater vehicle. This controller combines radial basis neural network and sliding mode control techniques. No prior off-line training phase is required and this scheme exploits the advantages of both neural network control and sliding mode control. An on-line stable adaptive law is derived using Lyapunov theory. It is observed that the number of neurons and the width of Gaussian function should be chosen carefully. Performance of the controller is demonstrated by computer simulations.
