  abstract =     "Autonomous controllers with adaptive behavioral
                 capabilities must accommodate uncertainty. Fuzzy logic
                 is particularly useful for this purpose. A
                 behaviour-based fuzzy control approach to autonomous
                 local navigation is presented here. A hierarchical
                 architecture is described which consists of multiple
                 sets of fuzzy rules. Each rule set represents a
                 decision or motion behaviour that contributes to a
                 dynamic map from stimuli to goal-oriented actions.
                 Synthesis of a behaviour hierarchy which combines
                 primitive motion behaviors to produce navigation
                 behaviours is discussed. This is coupled with a
                 technique for multi-behaviour coordination for which
                 fuzzy rule learning by genetic programming is applied.
                 The overall approach is verified by experimental
                 results in an indoor environment without use of
                 explicit maps. Performance is demonstrated on a mobile
                 robot with significant mechanical imperfections.
                 Descriptions of the experiments, apparatus, and setting
                 are included.",
