Optimization of a Fuzzy Controller for an Autonomous Mobile Robot Using the Ant Colony Metaheuristic

Part of the Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing book series (STUDFUZZ, volume 272)


In this chapter we describe the application of a Simple ACO (S-ACO) as a method of optimization for membership functions’ parameters of a fuzzy logic controller (FLC) in order to find the optimal intelligent controller for an Autonomous Wheeled Mobile Robot [15]. Simulation results show that ACO outperforms a GA in the optimization of FLCs for an autonomous mobile robot [48].
