Abstract:

Recently, many applications of fuzzy logic are emerging. More and more popular articles are published, reviewing the field of applications or reviewing the theory. The purpose of this report is to give a common sense introduction to the possibilities of fuzzy logic. One of the most important areas where fuzzy logic is used is that of systems where the input as well as output are not fuzzy but just numbers. For such systems it is shown that the fuzzy approach actually is a function approximation method, often allowing more insight than different methods. Even in application areas that may not seem fuzzy at first sight, possibilities appear to exist. This is the reason for this surveying literature study on fuzzy logic applications in general and fire control applications in particular.
