Abstract

This study shows the latest advances in the application of intelligent control to the inverted-pendulum problem. A complete review regarding intelligent control design is presented in this study in order to show the most important artificial intelligence methods used for controlling an Inverted-Pendulum. Also this study proposed the use of a neural-fuzzy-with-genetic-algorithms controller for the inverted pendulum problem which gives good results. Conventional controllers are presented in order to observe implementation problems. The study goes deeply in the details that have to take into account in order to understand design problems and limitations.
