Abstract: To objectively measure the paint appearance on a car body the same as that perceived by customers, this paper presents a novel method to model the paint appearance using fuzzy logic. Three popular parameters, orange peel, metal texture effect and gloss, are used as system input, overall appearance is defined as system output. This fuzzy logic model is fully based on human understanding and expertise The preliminary result shows that this model can well mimic human behavior to reflect the correlation between overall appearance and individual properties of the paint surface.
