There have been several works reported in the literature optimizing type-2 fuzzy systems using different kinds of PSO algorithms. Most of these works have had relative success according to the different areas of application. In this chapter, we offer a representative review of these types of works to illustrate the advantages of using the PSO optimization technique for automating the design process of type-2 fuzzy systems.
