A ball-balancer, basically an inverted pendulum problem, is stabilised by a linear controller. With certain design choices, a fuzzy controller is equivalent to a summation; thus it can replace the linear controller. It can be claimed, that the fuzzy controller performs at least as well as the linear controller, since the linear controller is contained in the fuzzy controller. The approach makes it somewhat easier to design a fuzzy controller.
