  abstract =     "To support the concurrent design processes of
                 mechatronic subsystems, unified mechatronics modeling
                 and cooperative body-brain coevolutionary synthesis are
                 developed. In this paper, both body-passive physical
                 systems and brain-active control systems can be
                 represented using the bond graph paradigm. Bond graphs
                 are combined with genetic programming to evolve
                 low-level building blocks into systems with high-level
                 functionalities including both topological
                 configurations and parameter settings. Design spaces of
                 coadapted mechatronic subsystems are automatically
                 explored in parallel for overall design optimality. A
                 quarter-car suspension system case study is provided.
                 Compared with conventional design methods, semiactive
                 suspension designs with more creativity and flexibility
                 are achieved through this approach.",
