This paper proposes an optimal time-varying linear state feedback control for wheeled mobile robot of the unicycle type. The control law that stabilizes exponentially the motion of the robot to a given desired trajectory is found, after transformation of the cinematic model of the robot into a well-known Brocket integrator [1]. Numerical simulations are presented in order to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed control design.
