Two wheels inverted pendulum robot has the same characteristics as inverted pendulum, which are unstable and nonlinear. Nonlinear systems can often be linearized by approximating them by a linear system obtained by expanding the nonlinear solution in a series, and then linear techniques can be used. Fuzzy logic control is the famous nonlinear controller that has been used by researchers to analyze the performance of a system due to the easiness to understand the nature of the controller. This research discusses about two wheels inverted pendulum robot design using hybrid fuzzy control. There are two types of fuzzy control, namely Fuzzy Balanced Standing Control (FBSC) to maintain stability and Fuzzy Traveling and Position Control (FTPC) to maintain position. Based on Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) fuzzy model on two wheels inverted pendulum robot, FBSC control used Parallel Distributed Compensation (PDC) with pole placement technic. Based on two wheels inverted pendulum robot movement characteristics, FTPC was designed using Mamdani Fuzzy architecture. FTPC control is used to help FBSC to maintain robot stability and to adjust to the desired position. Simulation result shows that controller for two wheels inverted pendulum robot can stabilize pendulum angle in 0 radian and close to the desired position
