Natural systems have evolved seamless electro-mechanical integration by exploiting intelligence and by developing multifunctional componentry. This philosophy also holds promise for creating smarter vehicles because the limitations of electronics integration and demand for new features will, sooner or later, clash with vehicle space and cost constraints. Meeting this need to maximize `functional density' and develop smarter vehicles will, however, require further improvements in several of the enabling technologies, such as digital signal processing, micro- electro-mechanical systems and smart materials.
