Robot widely use to help human to do something, especially for difficult or danger task. To fulfil the robot requirements, some techniques, sensors and controller have been applied. Due to kind of robot is a hexapod robot, which it develops in this research. Hexapod robot is a mechanical vehicle that’s walk on 6 legs. A hexapod robot movement are guided with guidance, they are line and wall. Fuzzy logic control as intelligent control is applied to govern the robot follow line and wall. Fuzzy logic controller is used to create a smooth response of robot behaviour rather than logic programming. Infrared sensors are used to sense line and distance to the wall as the input variable for the controller. Based on these signals, the controller control the turning angle of forward movement thus making robot to move forward and turning in same time.
