Implementation of a Hexapod mobile robot with a fuzzy controller

Fuzzy logic has features that are particularly attractive in light of the problems posed by autonomous robot navigation. Fuzzy logic allows us to model different types of uncertainty and imprecision. In this paper, the implementation of a hexapod mobile robot with a fuzzy controller navigating in unknown environments is presented. A robust fuzzy algorithm was created and integrated into a working hexapod robotic platform. The robot, MKIII, interprets input IR sensor data through the comparison of values in its fuzzy rule base and moves accordingly to avoid obstacles.   ROBOTICA / Volume 23 / Issue 06 / November 2005, pp 681-688 ; Copyright © 2005 Cambridge University Press
