The history and evolution of sliding control will be discussed. The main problems arising in the usage of the first order sliding modes will be explained. The second order sliding mode control algorithms and their specific features will be presented. The chattering reduction in the continuous second order super-twisting controllers will be illustrated. The precision of the arbitrary order sliding mode controllers will be shown. The continuous arbitrary order sliding mode controllers will be presented and discussed. Videos with the experimental illustration of the properties of the main sliding mode algorithms will be presented.
