Combining computer science, mechanics and electronics improves the performance of embedded electronic systems by reducing their weight, volume, energy consumption and manufacturing cost. Mechatronic equipment is constantly required to extend zero-fault lifetime service.

Embedded Mechatronic Systems 1 presents two methodologies to control failure occurrence: a statistical approach to design optimization based on experiments and failure mechanism modeling, and an experimental approach based on new tools to analyze the effects on the reliability of thermal, vibratory, humidity, electric and electromagnetic stresses.

This revised second edition contains a new chapter which introduces a multi objective optimization algorithm to tackle fluid–structure interaction problems: BSAMO. Practical tests and comparisons with well-known algorithms demonstrate how BSAMO can efficiently solve real-world multiphysics problems.
