Paper Abstract

With the particle swarm optimal (PSO) algorithm, an adaptive fuzzy logic controller (AFC) based on interval fuzzy membership functions is proposed for vehicle non-linear active suspension systems. The interval membership functions (IMFs) are utilized in the AFC design to deal with not only non-linearity and uncertainty caused from irregular road inputs and immeasurable disturbance, but also the potential uncertainty of expert's knowledge and experience. The adaptive strategy is designed to self-tune the active force between the lower bounds and upper bounds of interval fuzzy outputs. A case study based on a quarter active suspension model has demonstrated that the proposed adaptive fuzzy controller significantly outperforms conventional fuzzy controllers of an active suspension and a passive suspension.
