Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

To acquaint students with modern and efficient control methods, which use non-numeric descriptions of the control law in the science of artificial intelligence. Students will acquire knowledge of fuzzy set mathematics and fuzzy logic, artificial neural networks and evolutionary algorithms. Acquires skills in the design, debugging and application of fuzzy controllers, neural controllers and special intelligent controllers and advanced optimization using genetic algorithms. For the controller design and simulation is used Matlab-Simulink.

Teaching methods

Project work


The course is based on selected methods of artificial intelligence applied in the synthesis of non-conventional controllers of mechatronic systems. Approaches are used Mamdani and Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy controllers and fuzzy-neural controllers. To adapt and optimize the structure and controller parameters are used genetic algorithms. Computer simulations are carried out in Matlab-Simulink.
