Abstract: This paper presents the robot control intelligent interfaces for improvement of the walking robot dynamic stability, using the Dezert-Smarandache theory (DSmT) and the neutrosophic logic set (NLS). Starting from the hybrid force-position control by applying the robot neutrosophic control (RNC) method, known as Vladareanu-Smarandache method, we extend the fuzzy control for walking robot stability motion on uneven terrain and in unstructured environments. Results analysis through virtual experimentation for motion control of a mobile walking robot proves that the neutrosophic logic leads to performance improvement of real time control through robustness, adaptation to robot's environment, efficient control and fast and clear identification of robot states.
