Generic Structure of Fuzzy Controllers

  • Ian S. Shaw
Part of the The Springer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science book series (SECS, volume 457)


A fuzzy controller consists of four principal functional blocks, as follows:
  • fuzzification interface

  • knowledge base

  • decisionmaking logic

  • defuzzification interface.
