This work presents the design and simulation of a class of mobile robot namely differential drive robot, for target and path planning along with obstacle avoidance. A two wheeled differential robot is considered for this purpose. The target tracking is achieved by Go-to-Goal approach. Here the obstacle avoidance and target tracking is done along with time and path optimization using intelligent Fuzzy Controller and Genetic algorithm. Both the Genetic Algorithm and Fuzzy Controller are compared to find the flexibility and accuracy of the motion control. Different case studies are done to find which intelligent methodology is more efficient when it comes to path planning, target tracking and obstacle avoidance.
