Fuzzy Logic for Solving an Optimal Control Problem of Hypoxemic Hypoxia Tissue Blood Carbon Dioxide Exchange during Physical Activity


This paper aims at using of an approach integrating the fuzzy logic strategy for hypoxemic hypoxia tissue blood carbon dioxide human optimal control problem. To test the efficiency of this strategy, the authors propose a numerical comparison with the direct method by taking the values of determinant parameters of cardiovascular-respiratory system for a 30 years old woman in jogging as her regular physical activity. The results are in good agreement with experimental data.
