This paper presents an application of fuzzy and neural network techniques
to a visionguided closed loop control for stationary luminous flames. The
image processing technique is used to analyze and identify the process states.
Fuzzy control strategy avoids the difficulty in establishing a mathematical
model for an illdefined process. Expert knowledge and training patterns can
be incorporated into fuzzy rules, which are represented in the form of neurons.
The use of a neural network makes it easy to increase the number of control
parameters and provides the system the possibility to adjust its performance
