Paper Abstract

The author selected fuzzy-logic motion control (MC) that is propulsion and/or guidance and/or suspension control algorithms to the mechatronically controlled Intelligent Mobile (IM) small all-weather & all-terrain Surveillance Unmanned Autonomous Vehicle (SUAV). Fuzzy logic was chosen because it is easier to implement human driver (HD) skills using fuzzy-logic MC than using conventional MC algorithms. It filters even the uncertainty of the precision of the sensors. Therefore, the SUAV may move as smoothly as a well-skilled or experienced HD being along straight and curved routes on the hostile location or battlefield. MC for a SUAV requires many of the same elements that the military Command Control Communication and Intelligence system use. The IM small all-weather & all-terrain SUAV will have two types of moving mode-IR vision-camera mode and US sonar mode-originating from the differing methods used to detect the SUAV position.
