This study is on a moving robot with the tactile sensor, which is able to autonomously find the path to move. The f unction of the tactile sensor which is installed on the moving robot was described in the previous report. This paper describes the control method of the robot and the path-finding algorithm. The algorithm actively uses the information concerning obstacles obtained by the tactile sensor during the movement of the robot. The robot has three control modes; it can move straight forward or backward, or can make a turn on the spot. These modes are commanded by a mini-computer. The path-finding algorithm described here may be called as "Groping method". This algorithm consists of the following three sub-algorithms as "Normal searching", "Decision of steering clear of obstacle" and "Reverse searching". The abilities of the robot are shown by the experimental results.
