|Additional Information:||This is one of the subject area's premier publication. Findings are presented from novel research in safety critical system design. Electronic circuit functionality is �grown' across an array of simple identical processing elements, comparable to Biological cells, using a coding structure that resembles DNA. A distributed repair sub-system, modelled on the biological immune system, uses redundant circuits to repair faults. Thus, electronic circuits that are very robust to damage can be realised. There could be wide-ranging applications for this technology in the aerospace, robotic, automobile and other sectors. This represents a crucial step forward for safe and recoverable complex electronic systems.|
