Description

Introduction to Evolvable Hardware: A Practical Guide for Designing Self-Adaptive Systems provides a fundamental introduction for engineers, designers, and managers involved in the development of adaptive, high reliability systems. It also introduces the concepts of evolvable hardware (EHW) to new researchers in a structured way. With this practical book, you’ll be able to quickly apply the techniques presented to existing design problems.

From the Back Cover
THE FIRST UNIFIED GUIDE TO EVOLVABLE HARDWARE FOR THE PRACTITIONER

Evolvable hardware (EHW) is an exciting new field that brings together reconfigurable hardware, artificial intelligence, and fault tolerance in order to design autonomous systems that can self-adapt to compensate for failures or unanticipated changes in their operational environments. Demonstrating a high degree of reliabilityin extreme environments, these systems are finding exciting new applications in the military and space exploration fields.

Introduction to Evolvable Hardware: A Practical Guide for Designing Self-Adaptive Systems provides a highly practical introduction for engineers, designers, andmanagers involved in the development of adaptive, high-reliability systems, while at the same time introducing EHW concepts to new researchers in a structured way.

The authors cover the fundamentals of simulated evolution and provide an overview ofreconfigurable devices. Real-world digital and analog examples illustrate the power andversatility of EHW.

Special emphasis is placed on:

  • Fault-tolerant applications
  • System integration concepts
  • Real-time design issues

An ideal resource for anyone interested in applied rather than theoretical research in this growing field, the book unifies the existing literature, which has, until now, only been available in journal articles and conference proceedings, and presents it in such a way that readers may begin applying it to their own research and design projects in a relatively short time.
