This book introduces a dynamic, on-line fuzzy inference system. In this system membership functions and control rules are not determined until the system is applied and each output of its lookup table is calculated based on current inputs. The book describes the real-world uses of new fuzzy techniques to simplify readers' tuning processes and enhance the performance of their control systems. It further contains application examples.

From the reviews:
"The book is organized as follows. The first four chapters `introduce' fuzzy controllers ... . The remainder of the text covers applications, including noise suppression in laser tracking, medical engineering, flight control, and data mining. ... For a reader desiring a collection on advanced industrial FST applications, this text is adequate. The examples are fresh and fairly broad. Few readers outside this group will find this book useful. ... the reader is encouraged to investigate fuzzy methodology." (J. Douglas Barrett, Technometrics, Vol. 49 (4), 2007)
"This volume provides a systematic review of recent fuzzy-logic control applications. ... the volume has a healthy proportion of chapters with results from practical implementations of fuzzy-logic control. ... will be of considerable interest to all those involved in the development and application of the fuzzy-logic controller field. Industrial engineers and academic researchers should find the volume a useful indicator of the maturity of the fuzzy-logic controller paradigm and a valuable resource for exploring the potential of these controllers for industrial applications." (George S. Stavrakakis, Vol. 1135 (13), 2008)
