This paper proposes an intuitionistic fuzzy control method for twin rotor multi-input and multi-output (twin rotor MIMO) systems. Twin rotor MIMO systems are often used to measure the performance of control systems as they are extremely sensitive to environmental factors. The use of the intuitionistic fuzzy control method for modeling these uncertainties offers an effective way to increase the robustness of the control system to uncertainties in the structure of twin rotor MIMO systems. In this study, two intuitionistic fuzzy controllers are designed, namely for the main and tail rotors separately and then combine the outputs of these rotors. Also, this method is compared with the classical optimal PID method in terms of stability and performance by various simulations and experiments.
