The machine industry is today facing something of a cultural revolution, having to deal with increasing amounts of software and embedded distributed computer systems. This creates a strong need for multidisciplinary research and development. The talk presents a mechatronics perspective to this development with a focus on technical and methodological problems in the development of dependable distributed real-time control systems.
