Elevator Control Using a Fuzzy Rule Base

  • Kaoru Hirota


Recently fuzzy theory has been attracting attention as a powerful means of giving computers the capability to make human-like judgments. In the previous methodology, a condition could only be judged by the computer as “correct” or “incorrect”; but this theory permits the computer to make the same kind of subjective judgments that humans make in judging something to be “somewhat correct” or “a little bit in error”. In the last few years, a great deal of research has been conducted on applications of this theory to real systems [1–3].
