In this paper we highlight the stages of development towards intelligent control and define it based on literature. Furthermore, we propose a novel taxonomy of intelligent control methods which categorises these based on their level of uncertainty in three areas: the environment, the control system, and the goals. These areas are consistent with the key elements of intelligent control present in existing definitions. Using this taxonomy, we present some example intelligent control methods and their classifications to illustrate the applicability of the taxonomy.
