An adaptive truss structure with self-learning active vibration control system is developed. A fuzzy-neural network (FNN) controller with adaptive membership functions is presented. The experimental setup of a two-bay truss structure with active members is constructed, and the FNN controller is applied to vibration suppression of the truss. The controller first senses the output of the accelerometer as an error to activate the adaptation of the weights of the controller, and then a control command signal is calculated based on the FNN inference mechanism to drive the active members. This paper describes active vibration control experiments of the truss structure using fuzzy neural network.
