Enabling Self-Organization in Embedded Systems with Reconfigurable Hardware
Source: Hindawi Publishing
Increasing complexity due to rapid progress in information technology is making systems more and more difficult to integrate and control. Due to the large amount of possible configurations and alternative design decisions, the integration of components from different manufacturers in a working systems cannot be done only at design time anymore. Systems must be designed to cope with unexpected run-time environmental changes and interactions. They must be able to organize themselves to adapt to changes and avoid non-desirable or destructive behaviors. In heterogeneous environments devices with different abilities are available.
