The application of fuzzy technology is widely known as a technological revolution. Shortly after it appeared, its value has rapidly become appreciated. It is absolutely indispensable for introducing the latest developments not only domestically but also internationally. This book is arranged to introduce easy to understand explanations mainly centered on concrete applications. It consists of twelve chapters in total which are all independently readable and provide different approaches on various projects. The minimum of Fuzzy Theory that is needed to understand its practical applications is given in Chapter 1. Chapters 2 to 5 discuss hardware, including chips, and software tools used in constructing system. Chapters 6 to 12 cover a series of practical applications. These in clude applications for industrial processes and plants, transportation systems, which were among the first applications, and applications for consumer products such as household electrical appliances. These elements together finally produced the worldwide "Fuzzy Boom". This book can be read by a wide variety of people, from undergraduate and graduate students in universities to practical engineers and project managers working in plants. The information contained in this book is a first step to this field of interest.
