Summary: For high control performance of cable-driven manipulators, we design a new adaptive time-delay control (ATDC) using enhanced nonsingular fast terminal sliding mode (NFTSM). The proposed ATDC uses time-delay estimation (TDE) to acquire the lumped dynamics in a simple way and founds a practical model-free structure. Then, a new enhanced NFTSM surface is developed to ensure fast convergence and high control accuracy. To acquire good comprehensive performance under lumped uncertainties, in this article we propose a novel adaptive algorithm for the control gain, which can regulate itself based on the control errors timely and accurately. Benefitting from the TDE and the proposed enhanced NFTSM surface and adaptive control gain, our proposed ATDC is model-free , fast response , and accurate . Theoretical analysis concerning system stability, and control precision and convergence speed are given based on Lyapunov theory. Finally, the advantages of our ATDC over existing methods are verified with comparative experiments.
