Our objective is for a 3-link manipulator to reach a target while avoiding obstacles with online information using a fuzzy-behavior-based control approach. Control applied to mobile robots elsewhere is modified to suit to the manipulator. Fuzzy behavior elements are trained using a genetic algorithm. A component apart from the basic concept is introduced to overcome gravitation. Result shows the manipulator reaches the target with an acceptable solution for 3 simulations, so the proposed approach is suitable to multilink manipulator task control.
