The objective ofthe project is to develop a controller that could control both the speed and direction of a linear vehicle following a predetermined path with the smallest error as much as possible. The project is a continuation of the previous project which concentrated on the neural network controller for steering control for defined car model. Several input paths developed in the previous projects are employed to the control system in order to verify the functionality ofthe controller to follow the path as close as possible and as well as for comparison purposes. The previous projects showed that the controller designed could lead the vehicle to follow the path, but the percentage error could be further improved. Due to that reason, speed control function is added to the project to improve the efficiency ofthe controller. MATLAB has been chosen as the platform for the simulation design and result verification. PID controller and fuzzy logic are chosen as the methods for developing the controller for the system. The controller is expected to be able to monitor and control the speed and direction of the vehicle in which being represented by a DC motor. The project is then extended in real life application through the implementation ofxPC TargetBox. To accomplish the objective ofthe project, several tracks ofmethodologies are carried out during the time frame given. Several tools are required to be used through the project for testing and execution processes. The conclusion ofthis project would be subjected on how precise the linear vehicle follows the prescribed paths while varying the speed accordingly.
