Investigations into autonomous adaptable hardware

Department of Electronic Engineering

About the Project

For systems to become truly autonomous we must develop methods that will allow hardware devices/systems to adaptable in an intelligent and appropriate way to environmental changes and component failures. This project will consider the use evolution to automatically design hardware capable of self-adaptation. The focus will be on the hardware’s ability to demonstrate adaptability and fault-tolerance in particular. To achieve these goals it will be interesting to understand how artificial evolution can utilize novel properties of physical devices to achieve large scale and complex solutions to a number of computational problems.
