Layered Argumentation for Fuzzy Automation Controllers
We develop a layered argumentation system (LAS) for efficient implementation of Fuzzy automation controllers. LAS extends a logic based proposal of argumentation with subsumption concept and varying degree of confidences in beliefs. We show that this argumentation system can be used to model Fuzzy automation controllers. The argumentation system is based on a nonmonotonic logic, the computational complexity of which is known to be linear to the size of the knowledge base. LAS theories can also be mapped into RTL-VHDL (Register Transfer Level-VLSI Hardware Description Language) or RTL Verilog for very efficient hardware implementation of Fuzzy automation controllers.
