Neurofuzzy Controllers

Section 5.2 listed three fuzzy system types. The first was the rule-based system where human operator experience is incorporated into a rule set and membership functions. The second (parametric) and third (relational equation based) have reduced the element of human judgment to the construction of membership functions while the rules were generated from measurements.

These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
