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. Mechatronic equipment must operate without failure throughout ever-increasing service lives.
The particularly severe conditions of use of embedded mechatronics cause failure mechanisms which are the source of breakdowns. Until now, these failure phenomena have not been looked at with enough depth to be able to be controlled.
Embedded Mechatronic Systems 1 presents two methodologies: the statistical approach to the design optimization by reliability and the experimental approach for the characterization of the development of mechatronic systems in operating mode. It also analyzes new analysis tools on the effects of thermal, vibratory, humidity, electric and electromagnetic stresses.
