In recent years, intelligent industrial systems and consumer electronic products have been widely and intensively developed. Fuzzy logic, neural network, and neuro fuzzy technology, which integrates both approaches, are now regarded as an effective method to realize such intelligent features. In this paper, a review of the fuzzy boom in the consumer electronics market of Japan is presented. Typical applications of home appliances using fuzzy logic and neuro fuzzy technology are then described. Finally, methods and tools for developing fuzzy systems such as self-tuning and fuzzy modeling are reviewed.
