Paper Abstract

Design of a fuzzy controller requires specification of both membership functions and decision rules. Specification of membership function for a fuzzy logic controller has been an important issue. The traditional way of selecting membership functions has been, in most cases, an adhoc procedure. In this paper, an optimization algorithm based on simulated annealing for designing fuzzy membership functions for fuzzy controllers is introduced. An optimization algorithm for designing the membership functions and fuzzy rule base for a fuzzy controller is presented. An optimal fuzzy controller using proposed technique for backing up a truck problem is designed and implemented, in which optimal fuzzy membership functions and fuzzy rules are designed. Also, a neural network controller for the same truck problem is designed to compare our results.
