This chapter presents the notion of autonomous engineered systems working without central control through self-organization and emergent behavior. It argues that future large-scale applications from domains as diverse as networking systems, manufacturing control, or e-government services will benefit from being based on such systems. The goal of this chapter is to highlight engineering issues related to such systems, and to discuss some potential applications.
