8 December 2017, Real-time Applications of Fuzzy Logic Control, Tufan Kumbasar

Speaker: Tufan Kumbasar
Date: Friday 8 December 2017
Time: 13:00-14:00
Location: Room C1.112, Science Park 904, Amsterdam

Abstract:
Real time control applications inherit high levels of uncertainties and/or nonlinearities that can affect the performance of the control system. Thus, to be able to handle such uncertainties, there is a need to develop different approaches based on computational intelligence methods such as fuzzy logic. This talk will introduce the basic concepts of type-1 and type-2 fuzzy logic control by means of various real-time applications. I will explain how and why fuzzy logic control is an efficient way to control systems in real world environments and applications that face high levels of uncertainties and nonlinearities. The talk will showcase various successful applications of fuzzy logic control with real time settings such as in Computer Games, UAVs, Mobile Robotics, Pursuit-Evasion Games and Process Control.
