This paper presents the development of a visual-based fuzzy navigation system that enables a mobile robot in moving through a corridor or following a wall. The system employs a camera to detect the existence of walls on the left, the right, and the front of the robot. A mamdani-type fuzzy logic controller uses the information gathered by the camera to determine the turning angle and the speed of the robot. The fuzzy system is tested using an OpenGL-based 3D simulator that capable in animating the movement of the robot as well as generating the images captured by the camera. The results of the test confirm that the controller shows a good performance in navigating the robot.
