Ambient Temperature Modelling through Traditional and Soft Computing Methods


This paper presents a new hybrid approach based both on traditional and soft computing techniques to provide ambient temperature for those places where such a datum is not available. Indeed, we combine neural networks with the nearest neighbouring algorithm; we use a fuzzy logic decision maker and later compare the results of each single technique to the hybrid one. Experiments have been performed on several Italian places; results have shown a remarkable improvement in accuracy compared to single methods.
