In this paper, we have analyzed the dynamics of a magnetic guiding system and derived its analytical model with full DOFs (degrees-of-freedom). Then, an adaptive controller which deals with unknown parameters is proposed here to regulate the five DOFs in this system. The guiding system including sensors and drivers systems is actually implemented. From the experimental results, satisfactory performance including stiffness and resolution have been achieved. This validates, the design of system hardware and demonstrates feasibility of the developed controller.
