This paper investigates a fuzzy model reference adaptive controller (FMRAC) for continuous-time multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) nonlinear systems. The proposed adaptive scheme uses a Takagi-Seguno (TS) fuzzy adaptive system, which allows for the inclusion of a priori information in terms of qualitative knowledge about the plant operating points or analytical regulators (e.g., state feedback) for those operating points. A proportional-integral update law is used to obtain a fast parameters adaptation. Stability and robustness of this adaptive scheme are established using Lyapunov stability tools. The simulation results, for a two-link robot, confirm the performance of the proposed approach.
