    In the 'Fatigue damage control' project within VTT's 'Smart materials and structures' research programme, it was studied how to implement a machine that independently observes fatigue damage. A machine monitors itself and its environment. Based on that information, the machine changes its behaviour. For example, the machine could measure strains for damages and damage rates. After that, the machine can decide whether to modify its behaviour, trigger an alert, etc.
