Abstract: This paper introduces an alternative type-reduction method for interval type-2 (IT2) fuzzy logic systems (FLSs), with either continuous or discrete secondary membership function. Unlike the Karnik-Mendel type reducer which is based on the wavy-slice representation of a type-2 fuzzy set, the proposed type reduction algorithm is developed using the vertical-slice representation. One advantage of the approach is the output of the type reducer can be expressed in closed form, thereby providing a tool for the theoretical analysis of IT2 FLSs. The computational complexity of the proposed method is also lower than the uncertainty bounds method and the enhanced Karnik-Mendel method. To assess the feasibility of the proposed typereducer, it is used to calculate the output of an IT2 fuzzy logic controller (FLCs). Results from a simulated coupled tank experiment demonstrated that IT2 FLCs that employ the proposed type reduction algorithm share similar robustness properties as FLCs based on the Karnik-Mendel type reducer. © 2008 IEEE.
