Mobile robot is a mechanical device capable of moving in an environment with a certain degree of autonomy. The main goal of this work is to design, and simulate an intelligent controller for autonomous mobile robot named Fuzzy like PD Controller, as the test bed for future development of an intelligent vehicle. The fuzzy algorithm was implemented using a combination of three different units of fuzzy logic systems that controls two identical DC servo motors to implement the requirements of the safety navigation of the mobile robot. The paper implies computer simulations in MATLAB platform using a step input to demonstrate the ability of each controller to accommodate the sudden changes along the motion of the mobile robot.
