This paper presents the architecture and learning procedure underlying ANFIS (AdaptiveNetwork based Fuzzy Inference System), a fuzzy inference system implemented in the framework of adaptive networks. By using a hybrid learning procedure, the proposed ANFIS can construct an inputoutput mapping based on both human knowledge (in the form of fuzzy ifthen rules) and stipulated inputoutput data pairs. In our simulation, we employ the ANFIS architecture to model nonlinear functions, identify nonlinear components onlinely in a control system, and predict a chaotic time series, all yielding remarkable results. Comparisons with artificail neural networks and earlier work on fuzzy modeling are listed and discussed. Other extensions of the proposed ANFIS and promising applications to automatic control and signal processing are also suggested. 1 Introduction System modeling based on conventional mathematical tools (e.g., differential equations) is not well suited for dealing with illdefine...

Abstract  Fundamental and advanced developments in neurofuzzy synergisms for modeling and control are reviewed. The essential part of neurofuzzy synergisms comes from a common framework called adaptive networks, which uni es both neural networks and fuzzy models. The fuzzy models under the framework of adaptive networks is called ANFIS (AdaptiveNetworkbased Fuzzy Inference System), which possess certain advantages over neural networks. We introduce the design methods for ANFIS in both modeling and control applications. Current problems and future directions for neurofuzzy approaches are also addressed.

Nowadays fuzzy logic controllers have been successfully applied to a wide range of engineering control processes. Several tasks have to be performed in order to design an intelligent control system of this kind for a concrete application. One of the most important and difficult ones is the extraction of the expert known knowledge of the controlled system. The aim of this paper is to present an evolutionary process based on genetic algorithms and evolution strategies for learning the fuzzylogiccontroller knowledge base from examples in three different stages. The process allows us to generate two different kinds of knowledge bases, descriptive and approximate ones, depending on the scope of the fuzzy sets giving meaning to the fuzzycontrolrule linguistic terms, taking preliminary linguisticvariable fuzzy partitions as a base. The performance of the method proposed is shown by measuring the accuracy of the fuzzy logic controllers designed in the fuzzy modeling of three threedimensional surfaces presenting different

This paper proposes a geneticalgorithmbased method for selecting a small number of significant fuzzy ifthen rules to construct a compact fuzzy classification system with high classification power. The rule selection problem is formulated as a combinatorial optimization problem with two objectives: to maximize the number of correctly classified patterns and to minimize the number of fuzzy ifthen rules. Genetic algorithms are applied to this problem. A set of fuzzy ifthen rules is coded into a string and treated as an individual in genetic algorithms. The fitness of each individual is specified by the two objectives in the combinatorial optimization problem. The performance of the proposed method for training data and test data is examined by computer simulations on the iris data of Fisher.

AbstractIn this paper, we consider a fundamental theoretical question, Why does fuzzy control have such good performance for a wide variety of practical problems?. We try to answer this fundamental question by proving that for each fixed fuzzy logic belonging to a wide class of fuzzy logics, and for each fixed type of membership function belonging to a wide class of membership functions, the fuzzy logic control systems using these two and any method of defdcation are capable of approximating any real continuous function on a compact set to arbitrary accuracy. On the other hand, this result can be viewed as an existence theorem of an optimal fuzzy logic control system for a wide variety of problems. 1 I.

We examine the performance of a fuzzy geneticsbased machine learning method for multidimensional pattern classification problems with continuous attributes. In our method, each fuzzy if–then rule is handled as an individual, and a fitness value is assigned to each rule. Thus, our method can be viewed as a classifier system. In this paper, we first describe fuzzy if–then rules and fuzzy reasoning for pattern classification problems. Then we explain a geneticsbased machine learning method that automatically generates fuzzy if–then rules for pattern classification problems from numerical data. Because our method uses linguistic values with fixed membership functions as antecedent fuzzy sets, a linguistic interpretation of each fuzzy if–then rule is easily obtained. The fixed membership functions also lead to a simple implementation of our method as a computer program. The simplicity of implementation and the linguistic interpretation of the generated fuzzy if–then rules are the main characteristic features of our method. The performance of our method is evaluated by computer simulations on some wellknown test problems. While our method involves no tuning mechanism of membership functions, it works very well in comparison with other classification methods such as nonfuzzy machine learning techniques and neural networks.

In this paper, we describe a core system for autonomous navigation in outdoor natural terrain. The system consists of three parts: a perception module which processes range images to identify untraversable regions of the terrain, a local map management module which maintains a representation of the environment in the vicinity of the vehicle, and a planning module which issues commands to the vehicle controller. Our approach is to use the concept of "early traversability evaluation," in which the perception module decides which parts of the terrain are traversable as soon as a new image is taken, and on the use of a behaviorbased architecture for generating commands to drive the vehicle. We argue that our approach leads to a robust and efficient navigation system. We illustrate our approach by an experiment in which a vehicle travelled autonomously for one kilometer through unmapped crosscountry terrain. The system used in this experiment can be viewed as a core navigation system in t...

David Payton and Ken Rosenblatt have recently proposed a command fusion method for combining outputs of multiple behaviors in a mobile robot navigation system such that information loss due to command fusion can be reduced. Using linguistic fuzzy rules to explicitly capture heuristics implicit in the PaytonRosenblatt approach, we have extended their approach to a fuzzy logic architecture for mobile Published in: IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics, Vol 25, No. 6, pp. 971978, June 1995. This research was supported by NASA Grant NGT50837 and NSF Young Investigator Award IRI9257293. Figure 1: Which way to turn? Obstacle avoidance does not know robot navigation in dynamic environments, which is simpler and easier to understand and modify. We have also developed and empirically tested a new defuzzification technique for alleviating difficulties in applying existing defuzzification methods to mobile robot navigation control. I.

The term Soft Computing (SC) represents the combination of emerging problemsolving technologies such as Fuzzy Logic (FL), Probabilistic Reasoning (PR), Neural Networks (NNs), and Genetic Algorithms (GAs). Each of these technologies provide us with complementary reasoning and searching methods to solve complex, realworld problems. After a brief description of each of these technologies, we will analyze some of their most useful combinations, such as the use of FL to control GAs and NNs parameters; the application of GAs to evolve NNs (topologies or weights) or to tune FL controllers; and the implementation of FL controllers as NNs tuned by backpropagationtype algorithms.

Abstract—This paper examines the effect of rule weights in fuzzy rulebased classification systems. Each fuzzy IF–THEN rule in our classification system has antecedent linguistic values and a single consequent class. We use a fuzzy reasoning method based on a single winner rule in the classification phase. The winner rule for a new pattern is the fuzzy IF–THEN rule that has the maximum compatibility grade with the new pattern. When we use fuzzy IF–THEN rules with certainty grades (i.e., rule weights), the winner is determined as the rule with the maximum product of the compatibility grade and the certainty grade. In this paper, the effect of rule weights is illustrated by drawing classification boundaries using fuzzy IF–THEN rules with/without certainty grades. It is also shown that certainty grades play an important role when a fuzzy rulebased classification system is a mixture of general rules and specific rules. Through computer simulations, we show that comprehensible fuzzy rulebased systems with high classification performance can be designed without modifying the membership functions of antecedent linguistic values when we use fuzzy IF–THEN rules with certainty grades.
