Abstract

In this paper I review 8 recent applications of fuzzy logic in industrial automation. All applications used the so-called “fuzzyPLC,” an innovative hardware platform that merges fuzzy logic and traditional automation techniques. Following a quick overview on the fuzzyPLC, I discuss the 8 applications and focus on how fuzzy logic enabled a superior solution compared to conventional techniques. Whenever possible, I quantify the benefit in cost saving or quality improvement. For detailed information on the reviewed applications, I reference the respective papers.
