Paper Abstract

Engineering structures and systems such as transportation vehicles are made of structural materials which generally only have a passive function. All sensing, control and actuation required to make these vehicles move has originated from biological creatures. Human beings have always kept the major role of sensing and control while animals have initially been mainly selected to take over the actuation part. This fundamental fact, which is based on the nature to survive, has been the driver for all following technological development.
