This study proposed a new method for control cooperating robots. Many researchers have touched the problem of controlling an array of mobile robots. These controllers have been applied to different kinds of mobile robots. These robots are highly capable in industry due to their low cost and simplicity. Through their simple geometry, they showed to be an appropriate choice for varieties of applications. However, the presence of non-holonomic constraints in their motion renders the control of this robot quite a challenging issue. Conditions for which mobile robots are designed for include many uncertainties since these robots are employed in environments unknown to the robot and hence the robot may be experiencing the workspace for the first time. In other words, the robot may not have been in a similar situation before. In addition, in actual applications, the robot normally suffers from noise and perturbations inflicted upon its control system, making it extremely important to design a control system which would be able to cope with such problems. The fuzzy logic methodology is known to be a proper solution due to its remarkable capabilities. A novel approach based on fuzzy logic has been presented in this study for the formation control of such robots in their concerted motion. Simulation results demonstrate the efficacy of the proposed method.
