Abstract:

This paper describes the application of neuro-fuzzy techniques in the design of autopilots for controlling the yaw dynamics of an unmanned underwater vehicle. Autopilots are designed using an adaptive-network-based fuzzy inference system (ANFIS), a simulated annealing tuning methodology, and a fixed fuzzy rule-based approach. To describe the yaw dynamic characteristics of an unmanned underwater vehicle a realistic simulation model is employed. Results are presented which demonstrate the superiority of the ANFIS approach. It is concluded that the approach offers a viable alternative method for designing such autopilots.
