Fuzzy Clustering Data Given on the Ordinal Scale Based on Membership and Likelihood Functions Sharing
A task of clustering data given on the ordinal scale under conditions of overlapping clusters has been considered. It's proposed to use an approach based on membership and likelihood functions sharing. A number of performed experiments proved effectiveness of the proposed method. The proposed method is characterized by robustness to outliers due to a way of ordering values while constructing membership functions.

Fusion-Based Sensor Selection for Optimal State Estimation and Minimum Cost (Intelligent Optimization Approach)
This paper proposes a heuristic method for the sensor selection problem that uses a state vector fusion approach as a data fusion method. We explain the heuristic to estimate a stationary target position. Given a first sensor with specified accuracy and by using genetic algorithm, the heuristic selects second sensor such that the fusion of two sensor measurements would yield an optimal estimation in a target localization scenario. Optimality in our method means that a trade-off between estimation error and cost of sensory system should be created. The heuristic also investigates the importance of proportion between the range and bearing measurement accuracy of selected sensor. Monte Carlo Simulation results for a target position estimation scenario showed that the error in heuristic is less than the estimate error where sensors are used alone for estimation, while considering the trade-off between cost and accuracy.
Parameter Tuning via Genetic Algorithm of Fuzzy Controller for Fire Tube Boiler
The optimal use of fuel energy and water in a fire tube boiler is important in achieving economical system operation, precise control system design required to achieve high speed of response with no overshot. Two artificial intelligence techniques, fuzzy control (FLC) and genetic-fuzzy control (GFLC) applied to control both of the water/steam temperature and water level control loops of boiler. The parameters of the FLC are optimized to locating the optimal solutions to meet the required performance objectives using a genetic algorithm. The parameters subject to optimization are the width of the membership functions and scaling factors. The performance of the fire tube boiler that fitted with GFLC has reliable dynamic performance as compared with the system fitted with FLC.
New Condition of Stabilization of Uncertain Continuous Takagi-Sugeno Fuzzy System based on Fuzzy Lyapunov Function
This paper deals with the stabilization of Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy models. Using non-quadratic Lyapunov function, new sufficient stabilization criteria with PDC controller are established in terms of Linear Matrix Inequality. Finally, a stabilization condition for uncertain system is given.
