Abstract

The paper describes the use of agents and fuzzy behavioural structures as the basis for a hierarchical intelligent control system designed for systems operating in semi-structured environments. The paper reviews the current theories of robot control, fuzzy logic and behavioural control and proposes a structure of agents and fuzzy behaviours as an alternative system aiming at addressing issues arising from the required speed of processing, coping with partial environmental abstraction and the demands for robust control. The paper also examines some of the advantages of this approach compared to existing techniques and illustrates how the method operates in some typical applications.
