Fuzzy logic can be used to construct a nonlinear controllers by heuristic information which can replace the human intelligence working in a chain to complete a process. So it is a smart option to use the fuzzy logic to construct a controller to control a vehicle. Different DC motors like the shunt motors are prominent and flexible for electric vehicles. To control the vehicle dynamics like acceleration, braking, gear and terrain need to control the motor speed in proper way. So this paper advocates a novel approach to design and analyze a controller using fuzzy logic to control the speed of the vehicle. Traditional control sometimes take long time to determine optimum control parameters. But the designed fuzzy logic controller has the self tuning algorithm which can adjust the control parameters to gain the optimum control characteristic automatically.
