Abstract—This article proposes the position control of the directional wheel conveyor by using fuzzy controller in order to track the setpoint angle. Programmable logic controller (PLC) and camera image sensor were implemented to calculate the output of wheel slip for adjusting the direction of transferring object. The fuzzy rule method is implemented on Omron PLC and operated using SCADA through CX-supervisory software for monitoring and control. The experimental result presents the effectiveness of the setpoint angle position, with superior response of Fuzzy controller. The Fuzzy logic controller is online determined from embedded PLC. The angle position control from this proposed technique can improve position efficiently control directional wheel conveyor.
