The control of an autonomous passenger vehicle to reach a target amid static and dynamic obstacles is presented. To accommodate various model and environmental uncertainties, fuzzy logic is used in designing the vehicle's controller. The controller evaluates sensor information and outputs signals to change the vehicle's steering and throttle angles. To emulate human behavior, the controller is divided into separate modules. Each module deals with a specific navigational problem such as target steering, target throttle control, cornering throttle control, collision avoidance steering, and collision avoidance throttle control. Several simulation examples are included.
