The main goal is to maintain a specified position for a robot using fuzzy logic to control its behavior. In this paper we propose a novel approach for fuzzy control of an omnidirectional mobile platform to pursuit complicated trajectories in order to complete the whole robot route without losing the main trajectory. Simulation result show the advantages of the proposed approach.
