This paper presents the development of a behavior-based AGV using fuzzy logic. A robot platform and a fuzzy logic controller (FLC) are developed for the embodiment of different behaviors. Experimental results are given to assess the performance of the AGV and to validate the proposed design schemes for its construction and control.
