Abstract

This paper presents the systematic design of a fuzzy logic controller for a car- pendulum mechanical system, well known in the literature as the inverted pendulum problem. The system is non-linear and inherently unstable. The objective of the controller is to maintain the pendulum in its inherently unstable position (vertical and upward oriented) using only fuzzy logic techniques. The proposed method controls the pendulum on the assumption of a track of infinite length. The validity of the approach has experimentally been verified and the results show th
