This paper focuses on the application of employing fuzzy logic technique in an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) docking manoeuvre involving a moving platform. The core of the paper delves on the implementation of an enhanced fuzzy logic controller for the docking of an AUV in a simulated environment. The implemented fuzzy logic inference system (F1S) functions by mapping the individual fuzzy areas or cells (AUV positions) into a format that contains critical information regarding AUV speed and heading requirements such that the AUV could be recursively driven to the docking station.
