Around 80 percent of jet aircraft accidents occur during take-off and landing phases of flight and close to an airport because of varied weather conditions. Passengers, as well as nearby communities are, therefore at a heightened risk of death or serious injury. Smart products and intelligent manufacturing processes are becoming increasingly common and complex and this trend is expected to continue. However, there are a number of issues associated with incorporating intelligence in a complex system including; cost, weight, volume, heat, speed and accuracy concerns. And fuzzy logic control can provide advantages in some or all of these areas in a variety of applications. The objective is to design fuzzy based aircraft take-off and landing control system which senses the instantaneously changed weather conditions. It is a complex system of several critical inputs that require rapid processing and action in order to maintain flight stability. This challenging set of needs and constraints make the system an ideal platform to investigate the potential of incorporating fuzzy logic in a complex mechatronic device. Design philosophy is based upon the environmental conditions that are totally unpredictable, so attempt has been made to design a system that will check all weather conditions for take-off and landing of the aircraft and then will react accordingly. Hence, aircraft take-off and landing will be controlled using this system which helps in avoiding the accidents. The introduction of environmental conditions in the control process has expanded the design envelope for aircraft manufacturers to include features never before available.The project aims to thoroughly explore the theoretical and practical aspects of design of fuzzy controller system for Aircraft Take Off and Landing. To study thoroughly the wide spread applications of fuzzy logics and their membership functions.
I am highly grateful to the Dr. M. S. Saini, Director, Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College (GNDEC), Ludhiana, for providing the opportunity to carry out this independent study. The constant guidance and encouragement received from Prof. Nirmal Singh Grewal, Associate professor and Head of Department, ECE Department, GNDEC Ludhiana, who was the project Supervisor, has been of great help in carrying out the present work and is acknowledged with reverential thanks. And also thanks for his advice and academic support during my post graduate studies; for his guidance in completing this project and for giving me the opportunity and freedom to pursue my goals in such an interesting area. Without the wise counsel and able guidance, it would have been impossible to complete the work in this manner. I would like to express a deep sense of gratitude and thanks profusely to Prof. Sandeep Singh Gill, Associate Professor., Department of Electronics...
