public static BitSet bitSets(boolean[] vals)
		{
			
			BitSet bits1 = new BitSet(8); 
			for(int i=0; i<vals.length; i++) { 
			   bits1.set(i,vals[i]);

the array can be a boolean value of 0 or 1 or integer value or 0 or 1 and the BitSet looks like 10010111 now this value of BitSets should be represented as unsinged int or char
thanks in advance

Try
        public static int bitset2int(BitSet bs) {
                int result = 0;
                for(int i = 0;i < bs.length();i++) {
                    if (bs.get(i)) {
                        result |= (1 << i); 
                    }
                }
                return result & Integer.MAX_VALUE;
        }

Since char is unsigned anyway, you only need to do make one change:
return (char) result;
