Original Article


In this paper recent research into operating an intelligent mobile vehicle (denoted MV) is presented. A complex control procedure, having a two-input and twooutput fuzzy controller as kernel, is used. The inputs to the fuzzy controller are provided by a charge-coupled device (CCD) camera which transforms information on special objects by using an image processor. The MV is capable of tracking objects, searching for objects in space and recognizing a traffic signal. Results of laboratory testing are presented.
