    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    This article reviews the existing work in self-healing and self-repairing technologies, including work in software engineering, materials, mechanics, electronics, MEMS, self-reconfigurable robotics, and others. It suggests a terminology and taxonomy for self-healing and self-repair, and discusses the various related types of other self-* properties. The mechanisms and methods leading to self-healing are reviewed, and common elements across disciplines are identified.
