Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


As more people populate the roadways, vehicle safety advancements are needed. A fuzzy model of vehicular guidance is proposed to investigate this issue. Three main tasks associated with vehicular guidance include maintaining path, regulating velocity, and reacting to signs and obstacles. This poster demonstration introduces the initial efforts to identify the factors that describe a driver's reaction to obstacles. A five step approach used to develop this model includes a problem definition and statement of phenomena, scope of the problem, input and output definitions, input/output relationships and a plan to validate the fuzzy model. Each input and output are described by fuzzy subsets and membership functions, and input/output relationships are defined by fuzzy compositions. This poster demonstration provide a small example showing the capacity of these fuzzy utilities.
