ABSTRACT: This paper is about using fuzzy PI controller in order to help control the gap in magnetic levitation system (maglev). The details of this paper concerns about the model of maglev system which is applied to floating robots; it is also about how to use fuzzy PI controller for assisting the maglev system in order to make this system more accurate and faster. From the simulation which compared the reactions between fuzzy PI and the original PI, it showed that fuzzy PI had faster response without swaying the output values while it was reaching the setpoint values. Therefore, the fuzzy PI is suitable to control the maglev system in floating robots.
