Fuzzy Logic Applications

Is derived from fuzzy set theory dealing with reasoning that is approximate rather than precisely deduced from classical predicate logic. It is a concept that could be applied to any logical problem, instead of the digital or crispy logic.

Current uses
Industrial Control Marine Diesel engines
Low overshoot, highly dynamic and uncertain environment Robust and accurate control. Automatic gear selection behavior Tailored to suit the your driving style Adaptive fuzzy system

Volkswagen Direct-shift gearbox

Energy Saving AC Control

Industrial AC systems use fuzzy logic to minimize energy consumption. A complex control strategies optimizes the load set on heater, cooler, and humidifier. Car AC systems use fuzzy logic to estimate the temperatures at the head of the driver from multiple indirect sensors. Home AC systems are much simpler. They use fuzzy logic for robust temperature control.

Recent Research
Energy Management in Hybrid Vehicle Using Fuzzy Control
Fuzzy control methods use fuzzy rules instead of clear rules and fuzzy up the battery state of charge SOC and input power required, then the output ratio of engine and electric motor is obtained by fuzzy decision systems.

Test setup
The test set consists of 37,000 images sampled from two datasets. There are 13,026 faces samples. The network was trained on a cluster with 1,000 machines for three days. The best neuron achieves 81.7% accuracy in classifying faces against random distractors.


15.8% accuracy for object recognition on ImageNet with 20,000 categories. It is possible to train neurons to be selective for high-level concepts using entirely unlabeled data. Histograms of faces (red) vs. no faces (blue).


The Spaun Brain

Semantic Pointer Architecture Unified Network SPAUN, University of Waterloo, Canada It is composed by: Working memory system *Prefrontal cortex Action Selection system *Basal ganglia *Thalamus

It can observe visual images and indicate its responses with a physical model of an arm. Spaun performs all of these tasks based on the activity of 2.5 million simulated neurons.

Neuro-Fuzzy Systems
Neuro-Fuzzy synergisms for modeling and control, allows to fuzzy controllers not only take linguistic information from human experts but also adapt itself and improve the performance using the numerical data.

Artificial neural networks can feed very good widely range of problems but still is computationally difficult to train because of the long time needed to iterate and converge to a global solution; also the concept it is black box that doesnt show a relationship between input and output that could be modeled.

Fuzzy logic systems allows controlling highly non-linear process and gives robust and efficient responses, how ever are expert based system that doesnt learn so it is limited to the knowledge of people about the problems.
The join of different methods of soft-computing such as fuzzy logic and neural networks, or genetic algorithms and fuzzy controllers is the most promising fields currently in soft computing.
