Fuzzy controller for better tennis ball robot

V. Q. Nguyen, H. T. Tran, D. M. T. Huynh

Abstract


This paper aims at designing a tennis ball robot as a training facility for tennis players. The robot is built with fuzzy controller which provides proper techniques for the players to gain practical experience as well as technical skills; thus, it can effectively serve the community and train athletes in the high-performance sport. It is found that it is more economically efficient by using the sensorless fuzzy control algorithm to replace the high-resolution optical encoders traditionally used in two main servo motors. From our simulation and practical experiment, the tennis ball robot can provide accurate speed and various directions as expected.
