Special Session on "Fault Detection, Fault Diagnosis and Fault tolerant control of real life systems" @MED 2016

In recent years a plethora of methods have been proposed for the problem of Fault Detection and Diagnosis (FDD) of electro-mechanical systems, employing state
of the art approaches from the fields of signal processing, artificial intelligence and
modeling, with remarkable results. In parallel to these FDD approaches, Fault-
Tolerant Control (FTC) is also emerging as a significant approach after the FDD in
order to ensure that the system will work, even under the presence of faults. 
However most of these approaches have been only tested within laboratory
settings under fully controlled experimental protocols. Therefore, their actual merit is
yet to be proven within industrial settings and in more realistic conditions while
considering, apart from the presence of noise, the computational and space limitations of an industrial environment. 

This special session intends to attract research papers that can demonstrate
the effectiveness of proposed FDD and FTC methods under real life scenarios, thus
bridging the gap between theory and practice, while bringing closer academics with
people working in the industry.
