Summary, Etc.The main objective of the study was to device and integrate fuzzy logic-based auto-orienting and error-recovering schemes for a fuzzy navigation system of an Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) placed in an initially unknown, stationary and flat environment. As a testbed for simulation, AGV and environment simulators were created. As a basis for the fuzzy navigation rules, the AGV assumed four inputs (three ultrasonic range sensor values and the target direction) and two outputs (AGV direction and speed). A single photo sensor was assumed for detecting targets. A fuzzy navigation system was implemented employing 81 IF-THEN rules. For the auto-orienting scheme, it was assumed that multiple targets were placed near perimeter walls, and a fuzzy wall-following system was successfully implemented to automatically detect all targets and map out their locations. For error-recovery, a fuzzy spiral search system was successfully devised for recovery from shift and dislocation errors. This strategy required the AGV to scan its vicinity by following a spiral path until the target was found. A fuzzy wall-following search system, on the other hand, successfully provided recovery from timeouts and trap errors. Thus all errors were effectively recovered from with minimal assumed sensors installed. These schemes were integrated with the normal fuzzy navigation system to form the Integrated Fuzzy Navigation System (IFNS). Switching between schemes was managed by an over-all task planner. To evaluate the IFNS, an A* Heuristic Search-based Configuration Space System was implemented (ACSS). The ACSS, being an optimal path finding technique served as the standard. Results showed that the path efficiency was 84.9899% with respect to the optimal. However, by employing sub-goals or intermediated targets as guides, the path length efficiency improved to 94.7859%. Sub-goals also proved to be effective in eliminating trap and timeout situations
