Self-X and Autonomous Control in Mechatronics and Production

We apologize for cross postings!



The increasing of adoption of methods from computational intelligence,
biologically inspired computing,and optimization in engineering discipline
such as mechatronics 

or production enables the development of a new class of autonomous systems.
These systems often posses abilities which are best describe by the phrase 

Self-X:Self-Optimization, Self-Coordination, Self-Healing, Self-Repair and
many more.


These properties have in common that they shift decision making from humans
to the technical systems. This shift has two possible benefits. First,
decision made during 

the design of the system can be delayed until operation and thus the system
is able to react more flexible to different application requirements.
Second, the human effort

in managing such systems can be reduced and the corresponding systems are
more cost-efficient.This special session is dedicated to this new type of
Systems in the area of 

mechatronic systems and production systems.
