This work describes the design and development of intelligent algorithm applied to a newly designed mobile robot type-vehicle to control actions in autonomous navigation. A novel approach has been developed and optimized to achieve several tasks in a dynamic environment. This control algorithm combine's different sensory information and provides command to reach the true position. The system was described in the VHDL-AMS language. Simulation results are presented and implemented with VHDL-AMS on an FPGA development card type cyclone II. All simulations are compared with a designed algorithm using all resource values.
