This work designed a tracking controller for an industrial conveyor system using fuzzy logic. Also, the work discussed the impact of Fuzzy Logic Controller on the tracking performance of the conveyor system. Simulations were carried out on a model of a conveyor system with material mass of 1.0kg. Results obtained showed an improved settling time of 0.423 seconds, the rise time of 0.235 seconds, the percentage overshoot of 0% and no steady-state error. This implies that the conveyor reaches the desired position and stops without passing. This shows that the designed Fuzzy Logic controller satisfied the performance specification.
