Professor Lotfi Zadeh, the inventor of fuzzy logic, contends that a computer cannot solve problems as well as human experts unless it is able to think in the characteristic manner of a human being.
The fuzzyPLC is programmed by an enhanced version of the standard fuzzy logic system development software fuzzyTECH from Inform Software. fuzzyTECH is an all-graphical, design, simulation, and optimization environment with implementation modules for most microcontrollers and industrial computers.
Fuzzy Logic Applications in Industrial Automation – by Dr. Jörg Gebhardt and Constantin von Altrock
In recent years, fuzzy logic has proven well its broad potential in industrial automation applications. In this application area, engineers primarily rely on proven concepts. For discrete event control, they mostly use ladder logic, a programming language resembling electrical wiring schemes and running on so called programmable logic controllers (PLC). For continuous control, either bang-bang type or PID type controllers are mostly employed.
