Fuzzy models describe nonlinear input-output relationships with linguistic fuzzy rules. A hierarchical fuzzy modeling is promising for identification of fuzzy models of target systems that have many input variables. In the identification, (1) determination of a hierarchical structure of submodels, (2) selection of input variables of each submodel, (3) division of input and output space, (4) tuning of membership functions, and (5) determination of fuzzy inference method are carried out. This article presents a hierarchical fuzzy modeling method with an uneven division method of input space of each submodel. For selecting input variables of submodels, the multiple objective genetic algorithm (MOGA) is utilized. MOGA finds multiple models with different input variables and different numbers of fuzzy rules as compromising solutions. A human designer can choose desirable ones from these candidates. The proposed method is applied to acquisition of fuzzy rules from cyclists' pedaling data. In spite of a small number of data, the obtained model was able to give detailed suggestions to each cyclist. (C) 2002 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
