A fuzzy-logic-based model, suitable for force control, for each hydraulic actuator of a parallel link manipulator is presented. Constructing the fuzzy model rule base mainly consists of 2 stages: (1) learning rules from examples for the known acquired input/output data of the hydraulic actuators and (2) completing unknown fuzzy rules from heuristics and experience based on the logic of actuators’ behavior. We first present the algorithm of fuzzy-rule base modeling and its application for one actuator. We then present fuzzy rule base results characterizing each hydraulic actuator, differing from one to another, of a 6 DOF parallel link manipulator. Simulation output results from fuzzy models show good agreement with experimental results.
