But the name "Fuzzy Logic" has a warm "fuzzy" feel to it -- surely that has to could for something (grin)

What has been left out of the discussion is the reality that in all the cases where fuzzy logic is claimed to have worked better than any other form of control logic, it is always the case that the method being replaced was much less complex, and usually had fewer inputs. So why not compare two systems optimally using the same inputs? Most of the arguments for how much better fuzzy logic works would compare an on/off thermostatic control system with a variable rate analog control system. It seems that those selling the fuzzy logic the hardest always picked the most primative system as the "traditional method" to go up against. The most powerful and accurate control algorithms that we created used the classic PID methods, plus a bit of deadband stablization, plus possibly some of that "bang-bang" control to bring the controlled variables into the target range. Not a single hint of the fuzzy thinking.

Very interesting -- both books look to have a lot of useful information -- Max

If you are not so afraid of mathematics, I am quite enjoy "Fuzzy Control" by Kevin M. Passino and Stephen Yurkovich. However, you may have to adapt algorithms based on mathematics by yourself. That should be easy if you are working on MATLAB. The great thing of this book is you can get it (and another book) for free from author website: http://www2.ece.ohio-state.edu/~passino/books.html

That's a useful tip -- I'll remember that :-)

Fuzzy Logic: When "0" is exceptionally big, it's almost as big as a little bit "1". SCNR, :-) Stefan

I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous...

I know what you mean, I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure...

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
