2 Design a fuzzy controller for a train approaching station. Inputs are speed and Distance and output is Break power. Use triangular membership function. Consider two descriptor for input and three descriptors for output. Derive a set of rules for control action and de-fuzzification. The design should be supported by figures wherever possible. Design a fuzzy controller for a train with high speed and small distance.

5 (b) The formation of algal solutions in surface water is strongly dependent on pH of water, temperature and oxygen content. T is a set of water temperature from a lake given by T={50, 55, 60} and O is oxygen values in water given by O={1, 2, 6}. The fuzzy set of T is given by {0.7 / 50+0.8 / 55+0.9 / 60} and fuzzy set of O is given by {0.1 / 1+0.6/ 2+0.8 /6}
