Fuzzy Control and Examples of Applications

  • Kaoru Hirota


Fuzzy theory is a theoretical framework having fuzzy sets, fuzzy logic and fuzzy measure at its core, which started with the proposal of the concept of fuzziness and its expression in the form of fuzzy sets by Prof. Lotfi A. Zadeh of the University of California at Berkeley in 1965[1]. When this theory is used, the subjective vagueness possessed by humans can be adequately expressed and processed [7, 12].
