Ontogenetic Development and Fault Tolerance in the POEtic Tissue

In this article, we introduce the approach to the realization of ontogenetic development and fault tolerance that will be implemented in the POEtic tissue, a novel reconfigurable digital circuit dedicated to the realization of bio-inspired systems. The modelization in electronic hardware of the developmental process of multi-cellular biological organisms is an approach that could become extremely useful in the implementation of highly complex systems, where concepts such as self-organization and fault tolerance are key issues. The concepts presented in this article represent an attempt at finding a useful set of mechanisms to allow the implementation in digital hardware of a bio-inspired developmental process with a reasonable overhead.
