*A positive-negative (P/N) fuzzy system is a fuzzy system
whose consequent prescribes an action to be avoided. This is in contrast to a conventional fuzzy
system, whose consequent prescribes an action to be taken. P/N fuzzy systems have applications in
obstacle avoidance, among other areas.
** A pneumatic muscle actuator (PM) is an elastic tube that,
when inflated, contracts in length, similar to human muscle. I have been primarily interested in PMs as
actuators in robotic systems to aid the disabled.
