In this paper, we have analyzed the dynamics of a single-axis maglev system and derived its analytical model with full DOFs (degrees-of-freedom). Then, an adaptive sliding mode controller which deals with unknown parameters is proposed here to accomplish both guidance and positioning in this system. Finally, stability is proved and simulation results are provided. From the simulation results, good performance of regulation for guiding-axes and of tracking for positioning-axis is achieved.
