# How to use fuzzy logic toolbox in Matlab

## How to use fuzzy logic toolbox in Matlab

Introduction

In this tutorial, we'll explore how to use the Fuzzy Logic Toolbox in MATLAB to solve a tipping problem. Imagine you're at a restaurant and need to decide the tip based on service and quality. Let's dive into the process.

## Setting Up the Fuzzy Logic System

Define Input Variables:

• We consider two factors: Service and Quality.

• Membership functions for Service: Low, Medium, High.

• Membership functions for Quality: Low, Medium, High.

Define Output Variable:

• We categorize Tip into three levels: Low, Medium, High.

Creating Fuzzy Rules:

• Establish rules connecting inputs to output (e.g., If Service is Low and Quality is High, then Tip is Medium).

• Rules cover various combinations of service and quality.

Rule Viewer:

• Visualize and review the rules created for the fuzzy logic system.

## Exporting Fuzzy Logic System

Export the fuzzy logic system to a file . This file will be useful for future use and integration into other models.

## Integrating Fuzzy Logic into MATLAB Model

Using Fuzzy Logic Controller:

• Import the fuzzy logic system into MATLAB.

• Create input signals for Service and Quality.

• Display the Tip output.

Simulating Results:

• Simulate the model and observe the Tip output based on different combinations of Service and Quality values.

Observing Results

• Adjust Service and Quality values to see how the Tip output changes.

• The fuzzy logic system uses the defined rules to determine the appropriate tip based on the inputs.

## Conclusion

This example demonstrates the usage of the Fuzzy Logic Toolbox in MATLAB to model a tipping problem. You can adapt this approach for other applications by defining relevant input and output variables, creating membership functions, and establishing rules.
