Abstract:

Emerging mechatronic applications aim to work at limit performance and reliability while their size and operational space is getting restricted more and more. To reach those targets, often fast integration of customized components is necessary, either electronic systems, SW modules, sensors or actuators. Such diverse set of components needs special tool-chains and methods for fast customization and optimization respecting MBSE (model based system engineering) principles. Large-scale I-MECH project is a natural, fully industry driven initiative trying to follow those demands. The purpose of this paper is to describe its core scientific content, report initial milestones and show a variety of application where I-MECH components, so called building blocks, are being applied.
