This paper comprehensively analyzes Fuzzy Rule Interpolation and extrapolation Techniques (FRITs). Because extrapolation techniques are usually extensions of fuzzy rule interpolation, we treat them both as approximation techniques designed to be applied where sparse or incomplete fuzzy rule bases are used, i.e., when classical inference fails. FRITs have been investigated in the literature from aspects such as applicability to control problems, usefulness regarding complexity reduction and logic. Our objectives are to create an overall FRIT standard with a general set of criteria and to set a framework for guiding their classification and comparison. This paper is our initial investigation of FRITs. We plan to analyze details in later papers on how individual techniques satisfy the groups of criteria we propose. For analysis,MATLAB FRI Toolbox provides an easy-to-use testbed, as shown in experiments.
