This article proposes a navigation technique based on fuzzy maps of the environment for real-time applications. Particularly choosing the right operator plays important role in obtaining good results rapidly and accurately for different kind of environments. Mainly, A* algorithm is used for navigating the mobile robot in the fuzzy mapped environment defined by Yager Union operator. Experiments are implemented on Nomad 200 mobile robot successfully.
