The research project aims the student's scientific improvement with programming techniques and simulation, control systems, modeling and control of fuzzy systems studies. It is proposed the implementation of Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy regulators through the use of Matlab/Simulink softwares. The studies' motivation is the continuity of Ariel Feliphe Meneguello dos Santos' work, FAPESP process number 2012/10493-1 in computational implementation of projects for fuzzy regulators to the Junction of the Knee Joint Leg-foot biological system and tests with volunteers. The results of this research can be used by the Instrumentation and Control research groups from the Electrical Engineering Department in the development of a functional electrical stimulation system to generate movements on the lower limbs in hemiplegic patients and with monitoring routines of the treatment's progress.
