Fuzzy logic control has become an important methodology in control engineering. This volume deals with applications of fuzzy logic control in various domains. The contributions are divided into three parts. The first part consists of two state-of-the-art tutorials on fuzzy control and fuzzy modeling. Surveys of advanced methodologies are included in the second part. These surveys address fuzzy decision making and control, fault detection, isolation and diagnosis, complexity reduction in fuzzy systems and neuro-fuzzy methods. The third part contains application-oriented contributions from various fields, such as process industry, cement and ceramics, vehicle control and traffic management, electromechanical and production systems, avionics, biotechnology and medical applications. The book is intended for researchers both from the academic world and from industry.
