Fuzzy control accounts for the biggest industrial success of fuzzy logic. We review an interpretation of Mamdani’s heuristic control approach. It can be seen as knowledge-based interpolation based on input-output points of a vaguely known function.We reexamine two real-world control problems that have been fortunately solved based on this interpretation.
