The practical applicability of smart control systems suffers from the existence of uncertainty in the physical parameters, sensor measurements and external excitations. Effective methods and its ease of implementation are required in the real-time active control strategies. To this end, in this research, we introduce an overlapping clusters and Multilayer Extreme Learning Machine (ML-ELM)-aided interval type-2 Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy inference system for vibration mitigation of smart structures. The combined Fuzzy C-Means (FCM) and imperialist competitive algorithm (ICA) with respect to degree of fuzzy overlap between clusters was utilized for characterizing the upper and lower membership functions forming the antecedent part. Furthermore, indeterminacy was modeled as footprint of uncertainty (FOU) and automatically formed based on statistical characteristics of soft clusters. The consequent parameters were adjusted by hybridization of ML-ELM and overlapping clusters, then the adaptivity was guaranteed. The predictive accuracy and generalization capability of the proposed method were demonstrated over the estimation of active control effort. Finally, to prove the practicability of the implemented framework, it was applied to four high-rise, mid-rise and low-rise benchmark building structures equipped with active mass damper (AMD), active tendon and active bracing system (ABS). The obtained results demonstrated the higher predictive accuracy and generalization ability of the presented data-driven control scheme compared to the other standard technical machine learning strategies. This practical guideline is easy to implement and automates control engineering tasks in real-time applications, solving one of the most challenging aspects of smart control systems.
