In this paper, a new robust control law is considered for controlling robot manipulators subjected to uncertainties. The control law is derived as a result of analytical solution from the Lyapunov function, thus stability of the uncertain system is guaranteed. Apart from previous studies, uncertainty bound and adaptation gain matrix are updated in time with the estimation law to control the system properly and uncertainty bound is determined using a trigonometric function of robot kinematics, inertia parameters and tracking error while adaptation gain matrix is determined using a trigonometric function of robot kinematics and tracking error. Application to a two-link robotic manipulator is presented and numerical simulations are included.
