Abstract

This paper presents the fuzzy logic expert system (FLES) for an intelligent air-cushion tracked vehicle performance investigation operating on swamp peat terrain. Compared with traditional logic model, fuzzy logic is more efficient in linking the multiple units to a single output and is invaluable supplements to classical hard computing techniques. Therefore, the main purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between vehicle working parameters and performance characteristics, and to evaluate how fuzzy logic expert system plays an important role in prediction of vehicle performance. Experimental values are taken in the swamp peat terrain for vehicle performance investigation. In this paper, a fuzzy logic expert system model, based on Mamdani approach, is developed to predict the tractive efficiency and power consumption. Verification of the developed fuzzy logic model is carried out through various numerical error criteria. For all parameters, the relative error of predicted values are found to be less than the acceptable limits (10%) and goodness of fit of the predicted values are found to be close to 1.0 as expected and hence shows the good performance of the developed system.
