1 77 CHAPTER 6 GENETIC ALGORITHM OPTIMIZED FUZZY CONTROLLED MOBILE ROBOT 6.1 INTRODUCTION The idea of evolutionary computing was introduced by (Ingo Rechenberg 1971) in his work Evolutionary strategies. Genetic algorithms are computerized search and optimization algorithms based on the mechanics of natural genetics and natural selection: Prof. Holland of University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, envisaged the concept of these algorithms in the midsixties and published his seminal work (Holland 1975). Thereafter, a number of students and other researchers have contributed to the development of this field. To date, most of the GA studies are available through some books by Goldberg (1989), Holland (1975), and through a number of conference proceedings. The first application towards structural engineering was carried by Goldberg. He applied genetic algorithms to the optimization of a tenmember plane truss. It includes biology, computer science, image processing and pattern recognition, physical science, social sciences and neural networks. In this chapter, we will discuss the basic concepts, representatives of chromosomes, fitness functions and genetic inheritance operators with example and how this will be adopted for the truck like mobile robot problem.

2 GA IN FUZZY LOGIC CONTROLLER DESIGN Genetic algorithms are good at taking larger, potentially huge search spaces and navigating them looking for optimal combinations of things and solutions which we might not find in a life time. Genetic algorithms are very different from most of the traditional optimization methods. Genetic algorithms (Roy and Prathihar 2003) need design space to be converted into genetic space. So, genetic algorithms work with a coding of variables. The advantage of working with a coding of variable space is that coding discretizes the search space even though the function may be continuous. A more striking difference between genetic algorithms and most of the traditional optimization methods is that GA uses a population of points at one time in contrast to the single point approach by traditional optimization methods. This means that GA processes a number of designs at the same time. As we have seen earlier, transition rules are used to improve the search direction in traditional optimization methods and they are deterministic in nature, but GA uses randomized operators. Random operators improve the search space in an adaptive manner. Three most important aspects of using GA are: 1. definition of objective function 2. definition and implementation of genetic representation 3. definition and implementation of genetic operators. Once these three have been defined, the GA should work fairly well beyond doubt. We can, by different variations, improve the performance, find multiple optima (species if they exist) or parallelize the algorithms.

3 79 For optimal control problems, fuzzy logic techniques are primarily applied since quick control strategy is needed and imprecise and qualitative definition of action plans are available. Karl Lagnemma et al (1993, 1995, 1999), Lin xin Wang and Mental (1992) have investigated fuzzy based structural optimization using GA. Using the approach of Soh and Yang an FLC rule based system incorporating the flexibility of human decision making is used for fuzzy structural optimization. The fuzzy functions are intended to represent a human expert s conception of the linguistic terms, thus giving an approximation of the confidence with which precise numeric value is described by a linguistic label. primary activities. While designing an optimal fuzzy controller, one has to look at two 1. Find optimal membership functions for control and action variable 2. Find an optimal set of rules between control and action variable. In the above two cases, GAs have been suitably used. Figure 6.1 shows typical membership functions for a variable (control or action) having three choices low, medium, and high. Since the maximum membership function value of these choices is always one, the abscissa marked by X i is usually chosen by the user. This abscissa can be treated as variables in GA and an optimization problem can be posed to find these variables for minimizing or maximizing a control strategy such as time of variable operation, product quality, and others.

4 80 Low Medium High MF Value Variable Figure 6.1 Fuzzy Representation of variables 6.3 FLC-GA BASED STRUCTURAL OPTIMIZATION First, coding scheme is to be defined (Dumitrache and Buju 1995) and the initial population is produced. The computation with genetic operators is used to evaluate fitness with respect to the objective function. Figure 6.2 shows the FLC-GA based optimization procedure. Using FLC we can get the expert s experience in fuzzy rule base. Hence, the search can get optimum solution quickly. As a result, computing time is very much reduced. The predefined probability and fuzzy representation of design constraints cause FLC to reduce the risk of premature problem solution caused by improper rule. The parameters for genetic algorithms are Number of Generations-10, Number of populations-30, Cross over Rate-0.95, Mutation Rate-0.1.

The truck moves backwards at constant speed as shown in Figure 6.3.

6 82 Figure 6.3 Simulated schematic of truck and loading zone The truck corresponds to the cab part of the neural truck in the Nguyen Widrow neural truck backer - upper system (1990). The three state variables ϕ, x and y exactly determine the truck position. ϕ specifies the angle of the truck with the horizontal. The coordinate pair (x, y) specifies position of the rear center of the truck in the loading zone. The goal is to make the truck arrive at the loading dock at a right angle middle position of loading zone and to align the position (x,y) of the truck with the desired loading dock (0,0). We considered only backing up. The truck moved backward by some fixed distance at every stage. At every stage the neuro-fuzzy controller should produce the steering angle θ that backs up the truck to the loading dock from any initial position and from any angle in the loading zone.

7 TRUCK LIKE MOBILE ROBOT DYNAMICS MODEL The dynamic equations describing the truck like robot vehicle are as described in equations (6.1) - (6.4). The equations for the motion of truck have been derived from the geometric considerations and the schematic diagram of the truck as shown in the Figure 6.3. Equations are as below: dθ = dt v tan ϕ L (6.1) x ' = x + r cosϕ' y ' = y + r sinφ' φ ' = φ + θ (6.2) (6.3) (6.4) The variable ranges were as follows: -50 x x ϕ θ 30 Positive values of θ represented clockwise rotations of the steering wheel. Negative values represented counter clockwise rotations. The resolution of ϕ and θ was one degree each.

8 Fuzzy Membership Functions All membership functions (MFs) for: 1) Controller inputs, i.e., distance, distance error near and distance error far. 2) Incremental change in controller output θ for FLC or controller output for FLC, are defined on the common interval [1, 1]; whereas the MFs for the gain updating factor are defined on [0, 1.5]. We use bell shaped MFs with equal base and 50% overlap with neighboring MFs as shown in Figure 6.4. This is the most natural and unbiased choice for MFs. Figure 6.4 Bell Shaped membership function The fuzzy control rules have the form: R 1 : if x is A 1, y is B 1, and and ϕ is C 1 then O is f 1 (x, y,ϕ) R 2 : if x is A 2, y is B 2, and ϕ is C 2 then O is f 2 (x, y,ϕ). R n : if x is A n, y is B n, and ϕ is C n then O is f n (x, y,ϕ)

9 85 where x, y, ϕ and O are linguistic variables representing three process state variables and one control variable; A i, B i, and C i are linguistic values of the linguistic variables x, y and ϕ in the universes of discourse U, V, and W respectively, with i = 1,2;., n; and an implicit connective sentence also links the rules into a rule set or, equivalently a rule base. Using sugeno method the inferred fuzzy control action is implemented. 6.6 GENETIC ALGORITHM FOR INPUT AND OUTPUT GAIN TUNING The objective function that reflects steady state error is given by Minimize the function; f = t = t = 0 2 ( te ( t )) dt (6.5) Though GA can be used as a flexible method for input space partitioning, it has the major disadvantage of consuming much time, we have proposed here to use GA to the tuning of input output gains so that the convergence will be quicker and better result compared with the plant without GA. Fuzzy Gain scheduling using genetic algorithms is illustrated in Figure 6.5.

10 86 The fitness function serves as a focus towards the optimal solution and is used as a basis for selecting the parents for mating that have greater merit. The genetic operations are systematically and repeatedly applied to the population until an acceptable solution is found or a stopping criterion is met. Genetic algorithm is a random search technique as proposed by Goldberg (1989) that imitates natural evolution with Darwinian survival of the fittest approach. GAs perform on the coding of the parameters and not on the exact parameters, therefore, they do not depend on the continuity of the parameter nor the existence of derivatives of the functions as needed in some conventional optimization algorithms. The coding method allows GAs to handle multi parameters or multi model type of optimization problems easily, which is rather difficult or impossible to be treated by classical optimization methods. The population strategy enables GA to search the near optimal solutions from various parts and directions within a search space simultaneously. Therefore, it can avoid converging to the local minimum or maximum points better. GA processes each chromosome independently and makes it highly adaptable for parallel processing. It needs not more than only the relative fitness of the chromosomes; thus, it is rather suitable to be applied to systems that are ill defined. GAs can also work well for nondeterministic systems or systems that can only be partially modeled. GAs use random choice and probabilistic decision to guide the search, where the population improves toward near optimal points from generation to generation. GAs consists of three basic operations: reproduction, crossover, and mutation. Reproduction is the process where members of the population reproduced according to the relative fitness of the individuals, where the chromosomes with higher fitness have higher probabilities of having more copies in the coming generation. There are a number of selection schemes available for reproduction, such as roulette wheel, tournament scheme, ranking scheme, etc. Crossover in GA

11 87 occurs when the selected chromosomes exchange partially their information of the genes, i.e., part of the string is interchanged within two selected candidates. Mutation is the occasional alteration of states at a particular string position. Mutation is essentially needed in some cases where reproduction and crossover alone are unable to offer the global optimal solution. 6.7 BIOLOGICAL BACKGROUND OF GENETIC ALGORITHM All living organisms consist of cells. In each cell, there is a set of chromosomes which are strings of DNA and serve as a model for the whole organism. A chromosome consists of genes on blocks of DNA as shown in Figure 6.6. Each gene encodes a particular pattern. Basically, it can be said that each gene encodes a trait, e.g. colour of eyes. Possible settings of traits (bluish brown eyes) are called alleles. Each gene has its own position in the chromosome search space. This position is called locus. Complete set of genetic material is called genome and a particular set of genes in genome is called genotype. The genotype is based on organism s phenotype (development after birth), its physical and mental characteristics such as eye colour, intelligence and so on. Figure 6.6 Genome consisting of chromosomes

12 Creation of Offspring During the creation of offspring, recombination occurs (due to cross over) and in that process genes from parents form a whole new chromosome in some way. The new created offspring can then be mutated. Mutation means that the element of DNA is modified. These changes are mainly caused by errors in copying genes from parents. The fitness of an organism is measured by means of success of organism in life Search Space If we are solving some problems, we work towards some solution which is the best among others. The space for all possible feasible solutions is called search space. Each solution can be marked by its value of the fitness of the problem. Looking for a solution means looking for extreme (either maximum or minimum) in search space. The search space can be known by the time of solving a problem and we generate other points as the process of finding the solution continues as shown in Figure 6.7. Figure 6.7 Examples of search space

13 89 The problem is that search space is complicated and one does not know where to look for the solution or where to start from and this is where genetic algorithm is useful. GA s is inspired by Darwinian Theory of the survival of the fittest. Algorithm is started with a set of solutions (represented by chromosomes) called populations. Solutions for one population are taken and used to form a new population. This is motivated by a hope that new population will be better than the old one. Solutions, which are selected to form new population (offspring), are selected according to their fitness. The more suitable they are, the more chances they have to reproduce. This is repeated until some conditions (number of population) for improvement of best solution are satisfied. 6.8 FITNESS FUNCTION As pointed out earlier GAs mimic the Darwinian theory of survival of the fittest and principle of nature to make search process. Therefore, GAs are usually suitable for solving maximization problems. Minimization problems are usually transformed into maximization problems by some suitable transformation. In general, fitness Function F(X) is derived first from the objective function and used in successive genetic operations. F(X) = f(x) for maximization problem. F(X) = 1/f(X) for minimization problem, if f(x) 0 F(X) = 1/f(X), if f(x) = 0 A number of such transformations are possible. The fitness function value of the string is known as string s fitness.

14 SELECTION Selection otherwise termed reproduction is usually the first operator applied on population. Chromosomes are selected from the population to be parents to cross over and produce offspring. According to Darwin s evolution theory of survival of the fittest, the best ones should survive and create new offspring. That is why reproduction operator is sometimes known as the selection operator. There exist a number of reproduction operators in GA literature but the essential idea in all of them is that the above average strings are picked from the current population and their multiple copies are inserted in the mating pool in a probabilistic manner. The two important methods of selecting chromosomes for parents to cross over are: 1. Roulette-wheel selection 2. Tournament selection Roulette-Wheel Selection The commonly used reproduction operator is the proportionate reproductive operator where a string is selected from the mating pool with a probability proportional to the fitness. Thus, i th string in the population is selected with a probability proportional to F i where F i is the fitness value for that string. Since the population size is usually kept in a simple GA, the sum of the probabilities of each string being selected for the mating pool must be one. The probability of the i th selected string is given by; p i = n F j= 1 i F j (6.5)

15 91 One way to implement this selection scheme is to imagine a Roulettes-wheel with its circumference for each string marked proportionate to string s fitness. The fitness of the population is calculated as Rouletteswheel is spun n times, each time selecting an instance of the string chosen by the Roulettes-wheel pointer. Figure 6.8 shows a Roulette-wheel for eight individuals having different fitness values. Since the fifth individual has a higher fitness than any other, it is expected that the Roulette-wheel selection will choose the fifth individual more than any other individual. F=-f , 20% 1.93, 8% 1.91, 8% 4.66, 21% 1, 4% 2.1, 9% 3.11, 13% 4.01, 17% Figure 6.8 Roulette-wheel selection Since the circumference of the wheel is marked according to a string s fitness, the Roulettes-wheel mechanism is expected to make / F F i copies of the i th string in the mating pool.

16 92 The average fitness n j = 1 F = F / n (6.6) j This Roulette-wheel selection scheme can be simulated easily. Using the fitness value F i of all strings, the probability of selecting a string P i can be calculated. Thereafter, cumulative probability Pi of each string being copied can be calculated by adding the individual probabilities from the top of the list. Thus, the bottom most string in the population should have a cumulative probability of P 8 =1. The Roulette-wheel concept can be simulated by realizing that the i th string in the population represents the cumulative probability from P i-1 to P i. Thus, the first string represents the cumulative values from 0 to P 1. Hence, cumulative probability of any string lies between 0-1. In order to choose n strings, n random numbers between zero and one are created at random. Thus, the string that represents the chosen random number in the cumulative probability range (calculated from fitness value) for the string is copied to the matting pool. This way, the string with a higher fitness value will represent a larger range in the cumulative probability values and therefore, has a higher probability of being copied into the mating pool. On the other hand, a string with a smaller fitness value represents a smaller range in cumulative probability values and has a smaller probability of being copied into the mating pool Tournament Selection GA uses a strategy to select the individuals from population and insert them into a mating pool. Individuals from the mating pool are used to generate new offspring, which are the basis for the next generation. As the

17 93 individuals in the mating pool are the one whose genes will be inherited by the next generation, it is desirable that the mating pool consists of good individuals. A selection strategy in GA is simply a process that favors the selection of better individuals in the population for the mating pool. There are two important issues in the evolution process of genetic search, population diversity and selection pressure, as given by Whitely (1989). Population diversity means that the genes from the already discovered good individuals are exploited while promising new areas of the search space continue to be explored. Selection pressure is the degree to which the better individuals are favored. The higher the selective pressure the more the better individuals are favored. The selective pressure drives GA to improve population fitness over succeeding generations. The convergence rate of GA is largely determined by the selective pressure and population diversity. In general, higher selective pressure results in higher convergence rates. However, if the selective pressure is too high, there is an increased chance of GA prematurely converging to local optimal solution because the population diversity of the search space to be exploited is lost. If the selective pressure is too low, the convergence rate will be slow and the GA will take unnecessarily long time to find the optimal selection because more genes are explored in the search. An ideal selection strategy should be such that it is able to adjust its selective pressure and population diversity so as to fine-tune GA search performance. Whitley (1989) pointed out that the fitness proportional selection (e.g. Roulette-wheel selection) is likely to lead to two problems, namely

18 94 1. Stagnation of search because it lacks selection pressure, and 2. Premature convergence of the search because it causes the search to narrow down too quickly. Unlike the Roulette-wheel selection, the tournament selection strategy provides selective pressure by holding a tournament competition among N u (Frequency of Nu = 2) (Goldberg and Deb 1991). The best individual (the winner) form the tournament is the one with highest fitness which is the winner of Nu. Tournament competitors and the winner are then inserted into the mating pool. The tournament competition is repeated until the mating pool for generating new offspring is filled. The mating pool comprising of tournament winner has higher average population fitness. The fitness difference provides the selection pressure, which drives GA to improve the fitness of succeeding genes CROSS OVER After the reproduction phase is over, the population is enriched with better individuals. Reproduction makes clones of good strings, but does not create new ones. Cross over operator is applied to the mating pool with a hope that it would create a better string. The aim of the cross over operator is to search the parameter space. In addition, search is to be made in a way that the information stored in the present string is maximally preserved because these parent strings are instances of good strings selected during reproduction. Cross over is a recombination operator, which proceeds in three steps. First, the reproduction operator selects at random a pair of two individual strings for mating, then a cross-site is selected at random along the string length and the position values are swapped between two strings following the cross site. For instance, let the two selected strings in a mating

19 95 pair be A = and B= If the random selection of a cross-site is two, then the new strings following cross over would be A* = and B* = This is a single site cross over. Though these operators look very simple, their combined action is responsible for much of GA s power. From a computer implementation point of view, they involve only random number of generations, string copying and partial string swapping. There exist many types of cross over operations in genetic algorithm which are discussed in the following sections Single Site Cross Over In a single site cross over, a cross-site is selected randomly along the length of the mated strings and bits next to the cross-sites are exchanged as shown in Figure 6.9. Cross site Parent Parent Strings before mating Child Child Stings after mating Figure 6.9 Single site crossover

20 96 If an appropriate site is chosen, better children can be obtained by combining good substances of parents. Since the knowledge of the appropriate site is not known and it is selected randomly, this random selection of cross-sites may produce enhanced children if the selected site is appropriate. If not, it may severely hamper the string quality. Anyway, because of the crossing of parents better children are produced and that will continue in the next generation because reproduction will not select those strings for the next mating pool Two Point Cross Over In a two points cross over operator, two random sites are chosen and the contents bracketed by these sites are exchanged between two mated parents. If the cross-site 1 is three and cross-site 2 is six, the strings between three and six are exchanged as shown in Figure Cross site 1 Cross site 2 Parent Parent Strings before mating Child Child Stings after mating Figure 6.10 Two point crossover

21 Multi Point Cross Over In a multi point cross over, again there are two cases. One is the even number of cross-sites and second one is the odd number of cross- sites. In case of even numbered cross-sites, the string is treated as a ring with no beginning or end. The cross-sites are selected at random around the circle uniformly. Now the information between alternate pairs of sites is interchanged as shown in Figure Parent -1 Parent 2 Before crossing Child 1 Child 2 After crossing Figure 6.11 Multi point crossover Uniform Cross Over An extreme of multi-point cross over is the uniform cross over operator. In a uniform cross over operator, each bit from either parent is selected with a probability of 0.5 and then interchanged as shown in Figure 6.12(a). It is seen that uniform cross over is radically from one-point cross over. Sometimes gene in the offspring is created by copying the corresponding gene from one or the other parent chosen according to a randomly generated cross over mask. When there is 1 in the mask, the gene is copied from the first parent and when there is 0, the gene is copied from second parent as shown in Figure 6.12(b). The process is repeated with the parents exchanged to produce the second offspring. A new cross over mask is

22 98 randomly generated for each pair of parents. Offspring therefore contains a mixture of genes from each parent. The number of effective crossing points is not fixed but average to L/2 (where L is chromosome length). Figure 6.12(a) Uniform cross over Figure 6.12(b) Uniform cross over using mask

23 Cross Over Rate In GA literature, the term cross over rate is usually denoted as P c. The probability varies from 0 to 1. This is calculated in GA by finding out the ratio of the number of pairs to be crossed to some fixed population. Typically for a population size of 30 to 200, cross over rates are ranged from 0.5 to 1. It is seen that with random cross-sites, the children strings produced may not have a combination of good substrings from parent strings depending on whether or not the crossing site falls in the appropriate place. But we do not worry about this too much because if good strings are created by cross over, there will be more copies of them in the next mating pool generated by the reproduction operator. But if good strings are not created by cross over, they will not survive too long, because reproduction will select against those strings in subsequent generations. It is clear from this discussion that the effect of cross over may either be detrimental or beneficial. Thus, in order to preserve some of good strings that are already present in the mating pool, not all strings in the mating pool are used in cross over. When a cross over probability of P c is used only 100 P c percent strings in the population are used in the cross over operation and 100 (1- P c ) percentage of the population remains as it is in the current population. Even though the best 100 (1- P c ) % of the current population can be copied deterministically to the new population, this is usually preferred at random. A cross over operation is mainly responsible for the search of new strings.

24 MUTATION OPERATOR Mutation After cross over, the strings are subjected to mutation. Mutation of a bit involves flipping it, changing 0 to 1 and vice versa with a small mutation probability P m. The bit-wise mutation is performed bit-by-bit by flipping a coin with a probability of P m. Flipping a coin with a probability of P m is simulated as follows. A number between 0 to 1 is chosen at random. If the random number is smaller than P m then the outcome or coin flipping is true, otherwise the outcome is false. If at any bit, the outcome is true then the bit is altered, otherwise the bit is kept unchanged. The bits of the strings are independently muted, that is, the mutation of a bit does not affect the probability of mutation of other bits. A simple genetic algorithm treats the mutation only as a secondary operator with the role of restoring lost genetic materials. Suppose, for example, all the strings in a population have conveyed to zero at a given position and the optimal solution has one at that position and then cross over cannot regenerate one at that position while a mutation could. The mutation is simply as insurance policy against the irreversible loss of genetic material. The mutation operator introduces new genetic structures in the population by randomly modifying some of its building blocks. It helps the search algorithm to escape from local minima s traps since the modification is not related to any previous genetic structure of the population. It creates different structure representing other sections of the search space. The mutation is also used to maintain diversity in the population. Thus the inclusion of mutation introduces some probability (N pm ) of turning zero to one. Hence, mutation causes movement in the search space (local or global) and restores lost information to the population.

25 Mutation Rate P m Mutation rate is the probability of mutation which is used to calculate number of bits to be muted. The mutation operator preserves the diversity among the population which is also very important for the search.mutation probabilities are smaller in natural populations leading us to conclude that mutation is appropriately considered a secondary mechanism of genetic algorithm adoption. Typically, the simple genetic algorithm uses the population size of 30 to 200 with the mutation rates varying from to SIMULATION STUDY AND RESULTS Computer Simulation was carried out to test the proposed method. In the GA evaluation routine, a set of controller parameters is evaluated by starting the truck from several initial positions, (x 0, y 0 ) with the initial angle. Comparison of results was also performed with the conventional fuzzy over the proposed GA-tuned fuzzy logic controller. The truck was placed in a variety of initial conditions and backing up was effected in each case. The comparative results are illustrated in Figures Figures 6.17 and 6.18 show the surface view plot of the proposed GA tuned fuzzy controller. The 3-D plot represents the input output relationship of the designed controller. The surface view shows optimal mapping control behavior between the inputs and the output control action to be given to the mobile robot.

Table 6.1 shows the path time for various test conditions. i.e. the truck is placed at different locations and finally it has reached the docking position. The proposed GA tuned Neuro fuzzy logic controller efficiently auto guides the truck like mobile robot and efficiently guides the truck and follows a minimal path.

Comparative results evident that the proposed GA tuned fuzzy controller is able to guide the mobile robot in an effective way with less path time.
