Mechatronics brings together computer science, mechanics and electronics. It enables us to improve the performances of embedded electronic systems by reducing their weight, volume, energy consumption and cost. These pieces of equipment must operate without failure throughout ever-increasing service lives.
Embedded Mechatronic Systems 2 presents advances in the research and applied industry within the field of mechatronic systems, which integrates reliability into the design process. Providing many detailed examples, this book develops a characterization methodology for faults in mechatronic systems. It analyzes the multi-physical modeling of faults, revealing weaknesses in the design and failure mechanisms. The development of meta-models, enabling us to simulate the effects on the reliability of conditions of use and manufacture, is also detailed.
